First a question: any reports from OOPSLA?
Then a follow-up to a message from last month...

I would think at this stage a Feyerabend manifesto would be somewhat
diverse in its manifestations. What's needed today is diversity and
experimentation rather than coherence and unification. A manifesto
should promote those qualities.

This on-line group archive seems to be enough of a journal. What's
missing I think is discussion, especially about ideas and experiments.
I am interested in time-oriented, history-preserving data streams,
simple coordination models, adaptive object models, workflow, and
process & rule definitions, simple & composable user interfaces, all
made available to non-CS programmers.
Primarily I am interested in finding simple ways for non-CS
programmers to create time and space distributed adaptable systems.
