I would be happy to answer any questions about the history of Squeak,
Etoys, Smalltalk and related systems. And I have stuff to say about the
future as well.

My point was that SiliconSqueak, the hardware implementation of the
Squeak virtual machine, would be an advanced topic even for the main
squeak-dev list and probably would only be of interest to the vm-dev

Having said that, I gave a presentation about it at the SqueakFest 2009
in Brazil where the audience was mostly non technical teachers. Except
for a couple of slides with technical details, the rest of the talk was
probably something they could understand.
