[REBOL] Easy-Vid

YES -- Easy-vid is a very cool and unique tool. I do not know of any other interactive notebook/environment which interprets code snips like that, except perhaps Mathematica's own fabulous notebook interface. Easy-Vid in my opinion makes a brilliant courseware base for Rebol as early programming language. I played with it some time ago. I was interested to generalize it further as a dynamic template structure for loading and linking easy-vid friendly documents, as well as enable a timed remote control to allow one load save edit and play easy-vid 'books' as well as record and annotate sequence page visits. In other words give it a simple remote control API which can load save scripts. I'm afraid I got side-tracked by the 10-zillion things, and then increasingly because I became more interested/involved with FlashMX programming than View. But Easy-Vid is full of potential like so much rebol, and just needs a nudge I think. Best of all would be to interface it cleanly with and make it printable in some format. options to Load/Publish to, to HTML, PDF and of course Share easy-vid sessions :-) I've tried to promote it in forums like edu-sig, but even when people are not prejudiced about Rebol itself, they just can't 'get it' until they try it. The direct wow factor is huge. What a shame the rebol browser plug-in is no more. Mine worked for a couple of days c.2001 and it was lovely... seems like a distant dream now -Jason
