I downloaded Spring and tried it out. Very disappointing, I'm sorry to 
say.    (02)

The context sensitive linking between two objects was interesting, but 
flawed. When you have to email the programmer to ask for new ways for 
two objects to be linked, it just isn't going to scale at all.    (03)

On a brighter note, it appears that these small projects are starting 
to link together with collaborative ideas. They're small enough that 
they're able to design for each other's functionality. While the 
programs aren't terribly impressive now, they're on the right path.    (04)

Collaboration is certainly coming to the front of public consciousness 
so I suspect things are going to become very interesting and quite soon 
now.    (05)

Program recommendation of the day: NetNewsWire... this really is worth 
a look if you blog or read news websites and have an OS X machine.    (06)
