The relationship between *Smalltalk-80: The Language and its
Implementation* and
Squeak is important. It would be really cool if we could use the textual
content from it in Squeak, especially the discussion of the language. Where
the book might have a picture, we might use a live, interactive object that
the reader could peel off the page and play with. The community would need
to update some of the text to account for differences between Squeak and
Smalltalk-80, but I think that could be *really* fun: what if people could
edit it like a wiki? The possibilities are endless.

I imagine there may be some obstacles to do with usage rights and licensing,
but the second half of the book has been made available online for free, so
we might be able to make it happen?

If anyone here is in touch with Adele Goldberg or David Robson: it would be
wonderful if this message was received by them.

Also, anyone at Addison Wesley or Xerox might also be able to help point me
in the right direction.
