I have heard about this book by Randy Kaplan, but haven't read it. I 
thought a friend had and had sent me some comments but I wasn't able to 
find them.

Note that though it is very tempting to think of Self as a little 
language due to the quest for simplicity, most attempts to treat it as 
such haven't yielded good results. Little languages inspired by Self, 
on the other hand, seem to be doing better (see a short list at the end 
of http://www.merlintec.com:8080/Self/).
