Self in the news!

Hotspot designer Bak was quoted as saying:

/Bak worked on Sun's pioneering Self Project 
<> - which began life at 
Xerox and then continued at Stanford, and Beta, a successor to Simula. 
He has 18 years experience developing virtual machines. Any useful bit 
of advice stand out, we wondered?/

/"You have to make them simpler," he told us. "Which was not the case 
with Self; it was a fairly big system."/

Not exactly a glowing testimony- but then again he is working on 
embedded, small, systems, so I can kind of see his point; from that angle.
