How do you plan to expand the community? I am my company stupid for I try to open other's people eyes on the many wonders of Rebol. Yesterday, during the review I was told being unefficient and not respecting the company standards only because once I suggested to use Rebol for ftp transfers rather than VB. They also told me that I must learn VB in the future while I am still using C. VB an .Net to port the POS/retail applications to the Internet. I can't and don't want to believe that the Internet will be a M$ VB developed environment. I am seriusly scared about the future of RT, as told before, while I see a lot of things that can be easily made with Rebol I often hear: "It's not the standard", "RebWhat? Never heard before" and so on. In the meanwhile VB and .Net are doing the same things with the need of more resources and big lack of performances. Rebol must be known *BEFORE* the market is collapsed with "new" "standards" such as Flash, C# substituting Java and so on.... It looks like everything is going like my old beloved Commodore Amiga.
