I guess people are out looking for that new language they're going to learn in 2008, or something.
I like seeing the Io language get some attention. I've been reading Steve Dekorte's blog for a long time because I enjoy his posts on architecture and design, generally, as well as his policital/economical/sociological posts.
I only played with Io once, for an afternoon, several years ago with a friend who was getting into it at the time. He walked me through the basics of Io's reflection and "meta" capabilities as I typed his instructions into the repl.
What strikes me about all these aspects of Steve is the common theme of minimalism. Io certainly holds the "minimalist" point on the range of language options.
