Alan, I'm honored to be in contact with you. I love Squeak and how
you've brought computers to kids in such a nice way. I always tell my
students a little about you and Smalltalk and PARC history.
One of my TAs today installed Croquet on his laptop and will be giving a
little demo of it soon. Most of the computers in our lab have old
graphics cards so I don't know if we'll be able to get it running, but
I'm glad to have the kids at least aware of Croquet, and maybe some of
them with try it at home. I saw your talk on Croquet at Stanford a year
or two back--or was it Alice? I was also at SDForum when you spoke.
If you or your colleagues are ever out our way (near San Fran) and want
to drop in and meet a group of very enthusiastic Squeak learners, we
would love to have you.
I will document our progress here:
