Drinking the SK8 Kool-Aid

Cameron Esfahani (thread, via Daniel Jalkut):

One day my boss asked me to fly down to LA for the day. Apparently there was a developer there working on an app showcasing QuickDraw GX.


And right away I could tell something was weird. Structurally, most Mac apps look very similar. But this app was like nothing I’d ever seen before: heap and code were off.


“Oh, we’re writing it in SK8.”


SK8 was a weird Lisp-like multimedia authoring environment that Apple ATG was developing.

Needless to say, it wasn’t ready for production use.
