Hi Smalltalkers!

Maybe you are not aware of what our selection to this year GSoC really means
for the Smalltalk community. And I wasn't aware completely until few hours.
Just to give you an example, even such big organizations like Ruby or PHP
where not selected. From this viewpoint  you can see what we have achieved.

Some people said and still says that Smalltalk is old and that it is dead.
Ok, we have been selected by the major Informatics and Software company all
over the world.

The point is that ESUG and the Smalltalk community was selected because of
the seriousness mixed with passion of all the application, project and
ideas. We have an incredible high quality list of ideas and mentors.

We have a unique opportunity to show the rest of the world why we love
Smalltalk, why it is much better than other alternatives, etc. So, we invite
all of you to make this happens.

Thanks to everybody for all the congratulations and nice words!!!

Your GSoC admins
