Personally, I think the article is great. The key thing is it should
help legitimatise Smalltalk again. OK, if it was written by a
Smalltalker I'd expect the facts to be better, but for an article
by an outsider it's cool.

Let's not pick on decent positive press from someone who's not
currently part of our community. Sure it could be better, but if
nothing else it should make it easier for one of us to get a more
accurate article published if and when one of us writes it.
