[REBOL] Re: Altme: how to find groups

I am not swayed to AltMe, but let me explain.
I think AltMe wins for private messaging, or if you
want interactivity and presence awareness. But
standard email client supports richer features and
IMO REBOL community should not migrate to closed door
environment such as IOS or Altme. A healthy community
is visible and very active. REBOL community is already
eclectic bunch :^) Count the tributaries of Amiga,
Scheme, FORTH, maybe Postscript -- it's maybe enough
to fill a good-sized beer hall ;^)
AltMe is good for REBOL too. Its success as a
commercial app can point the way for others. But
REBOLs lifeblood is the group of talented and devoted
users that share knowledge in an open forum.
