Games Microsoft Research has been working on a new gimmick for XBox Live subscribers, something called "Kodu" that allows kids (and parents, perhaps?) to design their own games without prior knowledge of programming, and all done on the XBox console.

Sounds like Little Big Planet for the ps3. Trying to copy the success of that game.

Which was in turn trying to copy Second Life, which was in turn trying to copy Furcadia.

Everything's a copy of a copy of a copy.

Indeed. Those bastards at Microsoft Research, just few weeks after phenomenal success of Little Big Planet, traveled back couple of years in time ( http://blog.wired.com/monkeybites/2007/03/techfest_demo_b.html ) and copied all of it into Kodu.
