Squeak Oversight Board Minutes – 6/18/12


– all present except Levente Uzonyi

– Randal is talking to a person at a university about hosting a Squeak event in Los Angeles. He is also talking to the event managers of the YAPC::NA 2012 in Madison, Wisconsin held last week about their template for running a conference. (Perl is also working on its own virtual machine called Rakudo.org as part of Perl 6)

– Chris M. will be sending the revised election procedure to the SFC

– Colin will be getting the voter list and posting it on the Squeak Wiki

– Alan Kay gave a ››nice talk at the ACM’s Turing Centenary Celebration on Friday. He used VPRI’s Frank (as in “Frankenstein’s monster›”) research prototype, which is built on top of Squeak 4.3. To see the 20 minute video, choose “Extracting Energy From The Turing Tarpit››” from the playlist at the ACM’s webcast.

– still waiting on some news before we decide where the home of the new Squeak server will be

– as source control has been a topic of discussion, Gilad Bracha just made an interesting post on the topic
