Hm, Tim has this way of saying exactly what I would of said, had I been
born a clear and succinct thinker ... I've slight disagreement on 'best
tactics' with Dan, but not enough to mention right now. I can't really
speak to the question of the comms channels btw SqC/SqF/StSq; but I know
enough of the principles and principals involved to believe firmly that
collaboration, rather than competition, is everyone's shared mindset.
Like Tim, I'm also able to contribute some time now; I am also, however,
working on a couple other projects on the side.
One observation, though. As the legend has it, the StSq notion was born
of three minds bumping simultaneously (over what drink, I wonder?) in
Italy: Dave Thomas, Ralph Johnson, John Sarkela. Sounds like Dave and
John are firmly in the loop, but I bet Ralph'd have all sorts of good
ideas. Camp Smalltalk has, all in all, been a very successful and
measurably productive effort. Whomever decides to grab the baton and
lead the parade might give him a shout too. Just my opinion, and I
think I'll stop saying that ...
