It seems clear that if you want to go after the market of the sophisticated
end user who is prepared to program - the kind of people who started out
being interested in Hypercard way back - then the way to do it is a third
edition, cover mounted express version, distributed through the usual retail
I don't know whether that market exists any more, or is profitable. The cult
of 'ease of use' may have wiped it out. Apple evidently concluded the
contrary. But what it needs is this. And it needs to be expanded wiith
recipes! There needs to be quite a lot of material on the lines of, you want
to do this, this is what you use and this is how you put them together, and
this is why, and this is what not to do.
Its a significant indicator of the problem that Danny Goodman's books are
being recommended. Think what that implies!
