I’m trying to change that.  I’ve started a meetup group in the Chicago area for learning Squeak.  I am hoping to have a lot of young people get interested in it.

I have programmed in many languages and I find smalltalk to be the easiest to read and understand.  I’ve written code in come languages, that 6 months later was completely foreign to me.  I couldn’t remember what I was thinking when I wrote it, nor even if I wrote it.

With smalltalk, I don’t find that.  I actually enjoy programming.
