 I am interested why you chose to post this to the IAEP list. Last time I heard Mr Bender talk, he spoke of Waveplace as being 'of questionable educational value and dubious intent.' 

At the time, I remember thinking that it seemed that Mr Bender was attempting to create attention for his own project by disparaging other projects. At the time Mr Bender did not provide proof how Sugarlabs was preferable to Waveplace. Would he would like to take a moment to provide that evidence now?

>Hi everyone,
>I’ve been making great progress on Tidepool, our programmable game world for kids, though haven’t talked much about it this summer.  Yesterday I resumed my development log, with daily details and screenshots for those interested.  The programming interface is really coming along.

>We’ve also picked some solid release dates.  For too long, I’ve treated Tidepool as a pet project with “when it’s done” aspirations.  From here on, I’ll timebox each release as I would with a client.
>So, mark your calendar … beta release on December 1st … official “gold” release on March 20th.  These dates will not change.
>We’re planning a release party on March 20th with an equinox bonfire in our backyard, so if you’re able to make it out for the weekend, we’ll make room for you.  One way or another, my twenty-one months of work will be done, so come celebrate or commiserate.
>Take care,
>Timothy Falconer
