I recently came across Alan Kay's talks on youtube, then that lead me to
Dan Ingalls and looking at smalltalk, squeak and object oriented
programming as thought up by Alan Kay in the 1960s.

I wonder how come this type of computing isn't the mainstream. We've seen
other OS pop up since then that were a lot less capable that got some
mainstream success.

It seems like this type of computing gets put in the kiddy corner and most
people don't know about it or those who do kinda use it and sometimes
people just don't seem to get it.

Has anyone ever though about making a platform where squeak is customized
to the hardware, something like android, iphone, bb10 and qnx, etc..

Also if this is the wrong mailing list, can you point me at the correct
mailing list for this discussion.
