What was it? Stock market "game" for real money around 1998-2001?

There was a web-based stock market simulator game online in the late 1990s that sold fake shares for real money. It got shut down pretty hard. I can't rememberer the name or anything else to give me a line on finding information about it. I think it appeared in a law school case book for corporate finance in the early 2000s. Ring any bells?

Stock Generation?

I think it was related to the funds managed by Marketocracy.

It sure sounds like Stock Generation. I thought the site worked by paying real money for a fake share of a real company. So, one could "buy," say, IBM stock and your "investment" would track actual share prices. But - so many other details match up, this could be it. Thanks!
