I'll throw in a little tidbit of scarcely known history...
During this early foundation period of the language we have grown to love, 
even the Amiga computer had a development environment that used a 
hyperTalk/transcript like syntax. Actually it was exactly the same syntax, 
and also used the stacks of cards metaphore. Wonder where that idea came 
from... I wish I still had the installation diskettes (yep, floppies). 
This Amiga dev environment was called "Foundation". Sadly, it never 
evolved pased version 1.0.
