I've seen your stuff in the past and remembering it was actually what lead me to look at morphic.js in the first place. What I'm not sure about is whether it is all SqueakJS or not; what I'm interested in is driving  it from a cog vm. I *think* maybe your blog talks about that but I can't be sure.

To be honest I don't even know if that is really practical; I know that using Seaside with jquery/ajax let's us send javascript to the browser and that's about it. Whether it is possible to simply tell the browser what to do.. no idea. Interested to see ideas, pointers, doc. It's really just a thought about making interesting UIs on the web, more than just regular text fields, lists, buttons, images.
