[self-interest] Getting someone to port Self

Why not build a Self interpreter on the .Net Dynamic Language Runtime?
Sure, the performance won't be as good as native but you'll get more
portability in the long term.

Subject: [self-interest] Getting someone to port Self


I'm interested in making a number of improvements/changes to Self, not 
for any particular commercial motive but out of general interest in 
Self and its ideas.

A good starting point for this would be getting the Self VM working 
properly on linux and Windows.

Unfortunately, I'm not a C++ person, and the learning curve is a bit 
too steep and my time too limited to do it myself.

What I was wondering was whether anyone on this list knew any students 
who would be interested in doing the porting work. I would be prepared 
to put some money towards the effort of porting if it would help, 
though obviously my budget is pretty limited. Everything done would 
be released under the same open source licence as the rest of Self.

I'm open to any alternative ideas on how to get there too!

Best wishes,
