Hi guys

Happy new year! With plenty of seaside projects!
Yes we are working on the book to get a pdf version soon! :)
We got ugly bug with acrobat80 (you do not want to know - ugly ugly - breaking books only when printed). 

Now we are doing plenty of other boring stuff (project proposals to get money) and one of them is less boring :)
We are writing a request for funding from our employer (INRIA) to get an engineer working 
full time on pharo during two years. We would like to use him to make it (smaller, faster, cleaner and more robust, better tools).
Now we collected some company names as you can see here 
I would love to get a longer list. :-)

Your company name does not have to get public, our engineer proposal is classified confidential. 
Knowing an approximative number of companies using seaside with pharo or **planning to**  or starting to use pharo
would help us convince them. 

Side note: as a pharo active member I'm really honored and feel quite responsible about the quality of pharo.
When we did 3.9 with marcus stability and robustness was something we did our best to achieve. 

<my interpretation / vision for pharo>
Our goal with pharo is to make sure that we get an **innovative** smalltalk with 
which people can make enough money to raise nicely kids and get old! I have (three kids)
and employed by the state so you could think that these are words in air 
but I'm **really** sensitive to this point. Software to create  innovation and been relevant. 
We may create a company in the future so we are concerned.
