Does anyone else do this?
I find that I still spend a lot of time reading code. In fact, I spend more time reading code than I do writing it in Smalltalk. There's such a plethora of code out there in Smalltalk land that is entertaining to see how "they did it". For instance, I was surprised to see how small the continuation class used in Seaside was. It's a really cool exercise to see how this code works. Very cool. I also had fun looking at how continuations were done in Dolphin as well. But, the fun doesn't stop there! On one of my many browsings of the image, I seem to always come across something that catches my eye and I'm off on a tangent. I'm always amazed at what my Smalltalk comrades come up with and what inventive lot they are...=)
