[OT] Want to help build a new HyperCard

Over on the Yahoo group "Discussion Group for Hypercard" there is this 
topic.

This seems to be a seasonal phenomenon, which never comes to much, and I 
cannot
help wondering why it keeps coming up.

One thing that does cross my mind is that maybe (?) some of these people 
haven't heard about
Livecode. But that does seem a bit odd.

"New" Hypercard has been "done" at least twice: Supercard and 
Metacard-LiveCode.

As Livecode is now available in a Community (as is 'free') version I 
cannot see any possible reason
why someone might wish to create Hypercard; especially as Livecode 
contains a super-set of the features offered
by Hypercard (I sometimes think of Hypercard as 5% Livecode).

I think that 'We' (that's another word that can be discussed at length) 
ought to be thumping our
tubs a lot more!
