WebServices bioSqueak - sourceforge CV About Downloads Links

I've moved to sdf, a very cool public access unix system. The new url is http://edoneel.chaosnet.org

From now on this blog will focus on web services. I'll try to document my experience with getting web services to run in Squeak with a view to making it understandable to anyone, regardless of the computer language used

Reference information will appear on the WebServices link in the upper left corner but the essays will first appear below.

The Participatory Simulations Project. Role-playing activities have traditionally been used in social studies classrooms, but have infrequently been used in science and mathematics classrooms. Our use of the term participatory simulations is intended to refer to such role-playing activities used primarily in science and mathematics classrooms to explore how complex dynamic systems evolve over time. For example, each class member could play the role of a predator or prey in an ecology and engage in a class swide discussion of the resultant global population dynamics. A wide ranging set of sample content areas for participatory simulations include the spread of a disease, the flow of traffic in a grid, the distribution of goods in an inventory system, the diffusion of molecules through a membrane, or the emergence of an algebraic function from a set of points.

YALE - Yet Another Learning Enviornment. YALE is an environment for machine learning experiments. Experiments can be made up of a large number of arbitrarily nestable operators and their setup is described by XML files which can easily created with a graphical user interface. Applications of YALE cover both research and real-world learning tasks.

Hansa2 is an implementation of the trade game Hansa, invented by the economist David D. Friedman. The game is generally similar to games like Empire and Risk: the goal is to dominate the world. The great difference from other games is that in Hansa you expand, not by conquering your neighbors, but by persuading them to join trade leagues. How can you persuade them to join? By offering them a better deal than they can get elsewhere.

Back after a trip to Gibraltar

Perfect - Charles Handy's Radical Business Philosophy. From the page: For a few months now I have been espousing a concept called "New Collaborative Enterprises", as the basis for a radical, post-capitalist society. The idea is to create a new economy based on small self-selecting partnerships of people with unique and complementary skills, who would work for their mutual benefit as absolute peers. Now I discover that one of the very first 'management gurus', Charles Handy, has been calling for something like this for fifteen years.
