    I noticed those posts too and I decided to make a PDF of it to show it to my friends who actually are interested in Squeak through the Seaside project. As I am not a beginner in smalltalk 80 but a newbie in Squeak, I remarked it was primordial to know it. Here’s the link of my short copy:

    and the source in LaTeX:

    Spread it!
