Hi Andrew

We have a team full of Smalltalker and some Squeakers like nathanael
that built Genie the new handrecognition character.

I invited John maloney but I suspect that Alan will never let him come.
We can host you we have place, computer and fun. People around speak english, 
Switzerland is in the middle of europe: 4,3h by train from Paris, 6 to Florence, 
6 to Nice....

I would really like to host you for your sabbatical.

Oscar and some students are building picola a distributed oo language for 
scripting written in Java and Squeak. 
I'm and the rest of the team are working on reengineering. programm 

look at http:/ click alos on our wiki
Tell me if you want to know more.
