[REBOL] Re: language shoot-out :-)

That's interesting. In the past we've been invited to many such
conferences. Give it another try, and explain a little more about the
semantics of REBOL. Most casual reviewers don't understand the depth of the
language. I think they brush it off when they see the little one line
examples that do something like send a web page as email, and they don't
look further. But, they should.
I believe that there are several PHD theses that could be done on
REBOL. For example, just one such topic might be the difference REBOL deep
lexical level datatyping makes on expression optimization...this is quite
noteworthy. It offers another dimension of implied expressions. Another
PHD thesis would be the idea of dialecting with merged data and code.
