RE: ANSI SmalltalkIvan,
Smalltalk has been designed for all people (only a
 minimum of creativity is required after download).
It is also for people (like me) that consider Smalltalk
 more than aLanguage and know that it is not
 limited by the image contents nor aSet of definitions,
 so we do not need to constrain/present smalltalk
 to/as a language.
The number of alternatives with Smalltalk (as you know)
 is high and growing, it defines diversity; not fractionism.
We call ourselfves Smalltalkers and each day we are
 learning more from our differences.

  Hmm, that's strange. If I understand it correctly, will Smalltalk be a language of the rich?


  P.S. Emphasis below is mine.

  Since other people may seek sponsorship, and this message is going to a 

  lot of lists, it makes more sense to put these request on a single 

  place.  Therefore, I added you to the ANSI Smalltalk wiki at and mentioned that you are 

  looking for sponsorship (as I am :-> for that matter).

  Anyway, you only need to pay in order to vote.  The process will be 

  public, details will be discussed on the ANSI Smalltalk mailing list (so 

  this is my last spam-esque message).
