I do no such thing. I have never claimed credit for anything. I simply advocate for Smalltalk and I note that people around the world have appreciated my efforts. People like Leandro Caniglia, head of FAST. People like Vance Kershner, CEO of LabWare. People like Bob Nemec, organizer of TSUG (Toronto Smalltalk User Group). I could go on and on and on.
I don’t care for applause and recognition. For me, it’s all about getting the word out about Smalltalk to the rest of the world.
And I don’t make a dime from this.
No one owns Pharo. No one can lay claim to how it’s marketed (or whether it should be marketed at all). Some people advise against it; some people welcome it. Why should I kowtow specifically to the core Pharo team? It is only your personal belief that I should follow their advice.
