Incredible. I just got a pointer to this same site today from Joe Armstrong.
Not just fodder. It's an inspiration.
Also in the inspiration department...
I haven't got my iPad yet, but I found an old Windoze machine here
with a touch screen. I managed to get Chrome running on it and LK on
that. For some reason simple one-finger control is part of the
gestalt I envision for Lively. [I had this same feeling about Fabrik
over 20 years ago, too]. So I've been tapping on the screen with a
far away look in my eyes.
Draw approximate shapes in the world to make simple morphs.
Tap in an object to get controls and a menu
Handles and menus need to be bigger for fingers
Second tap goes to parent like Squeak
Pie menus? Still not for novices I think
Gravity, momentum, collision detection
