I still have no clue how to enter and manipulate text in a TextMorph.
Is there some intention to document that aspect of this fantastic
Some of the referenced papers are not available without substantial
memberships or purchase. Will that remain true, or will more current
papers eventually eliminate the need for the historic morphic documents?
Now that this mailing list has replaced the forums, is all the text
that I entered therein lost forever? I hope it can reappear as
content within a historical section of a new wiki until the best of
it is converted into better wiki pages and the old pages removed,
except from the historical archives.
What is the current thought about having a wiki for this stuff? I've
considered various ways to coordinate content between mailing lists
and forums and wikis. To me, there seem to be fairly natural ways to
maintain the advantages of each with all the content made available
in the wiki. That permits the continuous improvement of the content
while ensuring that the history automatically preserves everything
entered. Only the wiki medium serves the function of enhancing the
reader's experience continually, in a natural way.
Eventually, I will want to create multi world content with chosen
constraints on who can access and who can modify each screen/window/
page/world or whatever we call the parts. For my purposes, as long as
many browsers will permit viewing and limited choice and data entry,
it will be fine to require specific browsers for fully functional
development of new content.
The notion of a wiki implemented in Lively Kernel is terminally

(This wiki content may get moved to wetpaint.com to make it easier for
strangers to modify and add content. Login will still be required to do
more than read, though accounts will be easy to add for yourself.)
