[REBOL] Many Topics (was: Killer Application)

From: reffy:ulrich at: 17-Aug-2002 13:29

Hi List, I want to thank each of you that have responded to my questions. You are most likely aware of the insidious nature of the many changes in software trends and such that occur over a lifetime. The technology curve is a killer eventually. I have grown sour and disappointed with so much that has come about and have become quite skeptical of this and that. This is the basis for asking questions in hopes of finding out that Rebol is the magic bullet for some things I want to try to do. Of course, I don't want to go down yet another rabbit trail, so bear with me as I ease into this thing called Rebol. To the authors of Rebol, it is becoming apparent to me that you have some very interesting concepts and I wish to learn them of course. When I resort to humor, rest assured it is with good intention and not designed to intimidate, humiliate, or otherwise piss someone off. You are welcome to return it in kind if it stimulates you enough :-) My main interest now is in collaborative things. Multiuser spreadsheet is a simple example where each cell(or group of cells) can be locked/shared, etc. I would like to extend this concept down to the scalar item level (and maybe block in Rebol) so that some general mechanisms can be put in place for developing applications for community/group use. It might be the case that IOS already has some of these mechanisms in place, guess I will somehow have to figure that out. Again, I appreciate your help and look forward to learning more and more about Rebol. Dick
