Dan Ingalls pointed out that Strongtalk is now open source. The community now has an important opportunity and decision to make. Should we work with Strongtalk to build a Strongtalk VM for Squeak. There are a number of potential advantages to this path (see www.strongtalk.org) . There could also be risks. As our community changes it is important that issues like these be addressed publically, so that a broader range of the community can participate. Please join the discussion and move this issue forward while the opportunity still exists.
Dan followed up on his original post with a Community Challenge:

Here’s $5000 that says “some smart guy” will do it before the end of 2006.
