Danny Ayers posts on Tim Bray talking about "Beyond Java".
Some good points and links by Tim. Especially an excellent short description on how continuations help you writing web applications. (Recommended)
I'm still highly gratified by the whole "Beyond Java" thing, of course ;-)
Also interesting how much traction Seaside is getting. Wouldn't it be totally amazing if the "next big thing" turns out to be Smalltalk :-)
Well, good programming languages don't rust. Especially not something as flexible as Smalltalk where most of the language is implemented in itself. My Smalltalk writing skills though, have rusted a bit. :-(
