John McIntosh's OOPSLA 2003 Trip Report

Check out John McIntosh's OOPSLA Trip Report. Sounds like it was a lot of fun. Stephen Wessels was telling me various stories about the proceedings. My favorite is David Ungar's comment when asked, "Why is Java and C++ so popular?" from an audience member after he had given a talk about Self...He simply replied, "Why do so many people smoke tobacco? Marketing!" Don't quote me on that or Steve. But, I think that is the jest of it. Excellent....=) Anyway, I'll post more links as I find them...=) I hope to go to a Camp Smalltalk next year!
