I've joined the squeakland mailing list and hope to learn more from the
conversations there, and of course experimenting with squeak as well.
I'm particularly interested in working with kids to build mechanisms using
motors and relays, controlling them via computer, and integrating with images
and/or sounds on the computer. I'm pretty happy with my hardware interface and
construction methods (foam core, hot glue, motors from solarbotics, objects
removed from discarded electronic equipment, which the kids help take apart,
etc.) but I've been searching for an easy-to-use, free, Linux supported
multimedia environment that would support this. Squeak might be exactly what
I've been looking for. Would you have any final thoughts on where I might look
next in researching how squeak can help me here, or find others doing this sort
of work with squeak?
Thanks again for all your advice,
