[REBOL] What should we bake?

From: ryanc:iesco-dms at: 22-Sep-2000 13:41

I have a few questions about some of the suggested programs that we volunteers should make. Collaborative Work Environment Thing: Instant messaging and file sharing is great, but can REBOL multitask or fakytask well enough to make this work??? REMACS: I like the idea of emacs clone thats operation is actually understandable. Mega popular--I dont think so. It does however closely resemble the collaborative work environment thing from your description. I like the idea of plugins too. Maybe I am just put off by its emacs reference. Anybody got more info on Carl's component idea? A spec would be nice. Web Site Control Utility: These type of things are growing in popularity, the next killer app? Could be. I could see this being easy to create with REBOL as well, of course depending on how in depth you wish to go. Could you explain more about this? Educational Software: Once again another tick for collaborative work environment. REBay: I like an application that you can make money with. Definately some popularity too. Sounds kind of shaky though, depending on how EBay decides to lay out thier web pages. REBOL is good for this type of app. Unfortuneately it does'nt leave many useful components around for other apps to use. Maybe a tool for automating web sites could arise out of this, what do you think? -- Ryan Ryan Cole Programmer Analyst 707-468-5400 I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.
