[REBOL] Re: The future of Rebol - achieving critical mass

From: dmurrill:mindspring at: 21-May-2001 10:31

Hi folks Remember this?... Applications are created to solve solutions in the most expedient manner, in possible different environments... and rebol can do this fast,easy,and very well (just my thoughts). The Internet, for creating the WWW is a practice that's used for advertising services. Why would masses who need to bring services for a profit to a public by the means of using applications? Because the Apps not seen, it just does its' thing, it puts things into there browsed pages for us to gawk at. Can Rebol now, automatically, without the use of other add-ons,... function like: PHP,Pearl,Javascript,beans,Activex for the browser environment? ... No. Remember, before those scripting languages became openS. they talked to the browser, and that's why we chose them.....but know there really bloated. Don't want them. Rebol creates apps to get things done. I believe if you want masses from the WWW, your stuff better talk to the page, masses like to gawk not program. On the WWW, if your App can,t give away or sell services straight from the IE/NS, it will get flamed. Why ? because it's the Internet, and Browser Joe don't have too much time to think. Examples not used by Browser Joe &SurfChatHappy Sally: XML .Net Java C# Lisp C/C+ etc..... Lists getting bigger... And for all intent and purposes, they are all dying,don't fit the personal user internet idea. What ever can they do? Think like Cisco, become a carrier of info for the net and do it well. (Rebols approach?)
