Yes I imagend that's the bit I want to hear.. why great? what changes etc.. Has any one articulated this yet ? Rebol has had me hooked since last September. I have all kinds of plans for it, though someitmes it feesl the other way around. I am not sure if it is Rebolor rather thaifts in my balance of thinknig.. more fun more experimentally and experientially actove than before. Somethign seems to hapepn quickyl one I even try out as tiny idea with Rebol to get the conceptual juice flowing. Only propblme now is my ideas aer way ahead fo my skills. I begin to suspect a: dillusion b: re-inventing bycicles in siberia when what I really need is horse or a yurt ie: it has got me wondering more deeply about architectures and network processes. So yesterday I dove into an amazing book called: Illustrating Evolutionary Computation with Mathematica by Christian Jacob. It's part of an online tutorial glittering under the bannerof 'Evolvica' Mathematica is nice, but not essential to appreciate whate he's doing. A free MathReader tool will suffice, plus there's Java examples and some other great illustrations. The math and biology are way beyond my present skills, but despite that, I feel am still 'getting' a lot of it. And I suspect growth and adaptation of Rebol-based communications may be very close to opening up similar behaviors . So then I wonder really what is the architectural design for REBOL.. and what direction[s] is it headed? I am ramblling and reaching... Does this make sense to anyone? [time for bed] ./Jason
