Hmm, hopefully i know enough english to argue,
normally use it only computer-related..
Private Web-pages have this typical stuff like "email me",
guestbook and such.
a guestbook with a rebol-interpreter-applet,
where people could post and test short funny scripts,
to have some additional fun.
Rebol has a certain kind of ridle-ability,
because it is short and surprising.
Also, Newspapers have some "standard" tools
like crosswords, chess, weather, horoscope.
Rebol-ridles could be another such tool.
Like Chess not everyone would solve them,
but they give a kind of intellectual flair,
and some of the non-solvers at least have a look
to the ridle, some thinking and a look to the
And thinking about horoscope and biorythmus:
having such programms on the site,
people would really use and trust them *g*.
And short understandable code for the curious
could be supplied too.
With "ide" in rebol on the webpage (edit, output-field minimally).
You know, not reading descriptions or "click yes/no" or move
mouse. change a letter on the screen, run, see what happens. try.
In the very old days with homecomputers, BASIC
and declaration-free programming (input, print, no gui)
people where interested in programming.
Specially Scientific American had small interesting programming projects.
So having a rebol-page with cute one-liners, graphics demos,
find the bug
and something could be another feature
