Prism daily journal now available

It's been a while since I posted to this mailing list, but I wanted to
let you all know that Prism is still alive... in fact, I've been working
on it daily. Up until now, there was no way to tell what was happening,
so I've decided to start transcribing my work journal into HTML so
people can see what's really going on (instead of boring news with
month-long gaps) and possibly even contribute. Come by the web site and
check it out.
(Prism is a different way to create programming languages. Rather than
using long strings of characters to represent programs, the languages,
or "metamodels," use complex data structures made from simple data
types. Prism is particularly well suited to translating programs from
one language to another and to using multiple languages in one program.
For the why's and wherefore's, see "The Will and the Word: A Philosophy
of Programming" at
