I joined the Smalltalk community because of Seaside or rather because of Avi
Bryant's, Lukas's and others magical demonstrations that Seaside offered a
compellingly more productive way of developing web applications. Some of the
reason I continue to choose Seaside over other frameworks:
* Component based
* State management
* DSL for Html generation
* Neat integration with Scriptaculous and now JQuery for AJAX
* #call, #answer semantics
* active, friendly and technically deep development community.

The question we should be asking ourselves is what compelling features can
we develop which will attract a set of new developers to Smalltalk,
otherwise it feels like we're bald men fighting over a comb.
