neues & squeak
What is so new about blogging? Apart from the fact that “blogging” is already several years old, nothing. Having a personal website on which you write is, I would say, almost as old as the web itsself. It just wasn't called blogging but news, diary, whatever.
I did play around with squeak, only as much as to get a superficial impression of it. It seems to be a very nice IDE, they syntax though is a bit unusual to me. I wish it were lisp.
