      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.

      > Previously Rejected as not Computer Science-y Enough")?

      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.
