<br/>> 1. The community seems TINY for such a cool project. At this point it seems to mainly consist of people in academics and "old-timers" that have stuck around since a time when Squeak was more popular. Is this correct or am I maybe not looking in the right places?
<br/>> It seems a shame if such an amazing project were to die out because of lack of popularity, considering all the possibilities that this level of intractability with the programming environment enables.
<br/><br/>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.
<br/><br/>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.
<br/><br/>With smalltalk, I don’t find that. I actually enjoy programming.
