[REBOL] The Industry Needs REBOL But Thinks it Wants Perl Re:(7)

How did you handle unruly students typing out of turn? (assuming
there may have been unruly students. Trolls are always possible.)
The possibilities for a productive online classroom are increasing,
even for those persons stuck with low bandwidth. On the BeOS, we
have BeShare, which is a file-sharing program (similar to Napster, but
for any kind of file) but it is also a chat room where you can see who
is connected at all times. It is a great community building tool
because people pop in all of the time with questions, which they get
answered (or at least responded to) much more quickly than they
could receive responses from an e-mail discussion list.
Of course, there are coding projects going on at BeShare quit often
and the file-sharing aspects of BeShare help out with that quite a bit.
BTW, BeShare is open source as well as the server software called
MUSCLE. So far, MUSCLE servers have been compiled for the
BeOS, Linux, and FreeBSD.
I may start a REBOL collaboration on BeShare some day to increase
the interest in REBOL. I need to brush up on my own skills first,
