Sometimes what you want to say is hard to write or hard to get right in the programming model you're using. But how do we try another? There are many powerful programming models but most are not well supported by today's mainstream languages. Concurrency is one.

This talk will discuss the programming model of Newsqueak, a concurrent programming language I designed and implemented to make it easier to write interactive applications in the late 1980s. It acts nothing like the tools used for that purpose today, but its ideas still have relevance. The language's users taught me a lot about concurrency, but they also taught me a lot about interface design and how to think about interactive - and interacting - systems.
