[REBOL] Re: teaching rebol

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 2-Apr-2003 10:07

Hi Andrew, AM> I'm against creating a dialect purely for teaching purposes. It's better to AM> create a dialect that's useful, instead. It would be useful, if it helps to teach concepts though, no? To me, the experts who are the best at explaining advanced concepts to normal people (i.e. people out of the know) are able to distill the important principles and elements and express them in ways that may have no "real value" beyond that context. Would you agree or disagree with that statement? -- Gregg
