This is what we've got so far:


Please help adding to this collection, thank you.


Hi folks,

I think that I'm going to build the Squeak Collection of Outstanding  
Remarkable Values. Therefore I have to tap the collective memory of the  
Squeakers (->YOU!)

Take the following true positive examples which I hope do illustrate what  
I want to collect (further down below it has some false positive examples  
that I don't want to collect, just let them coexist please).

Of course as soon as some momentum is gathered there be a web page which  
all the google users can make their start page.

Do you happen to know a knowledgeable factum? If so, please post. Was such  
a collection already set up? If so, please post. Even if you have just  
some meager keywords: I want to know them, please post. I will do all the  
hard research work and find out the background and the related (if google  

Thank you in advance, please post even your craziest idea!
