I wrapped up the initial work on my timeline component for PlayCanvas.
Check out the article and project and let me know what you think.
I know my choice of platforms isn’t for everyone, but with these three tools I feel like I can make anything:
✅ FileMaker: internal systems
✅ WordPress: public facing website

Oh, and there are buckets of cash to be had in all three platforms.
Ok, I now have permission to talk about this project in full and in public. I'm working with Alan Kay to build six replicas* of a Xerox PARC Alto display for use in a museum exhibit**. Visitors will see a real Alto and then walk over to one of the replicas to futz with Smalltalk '78***.
Here's a nice writeup of a different project that rejuvenated an actual Alto.

I just pushed "Go!" on the final issue of the Transmutable News Weekly. In this issue I get preachy about the future and your role therein.
