&gt; <i>And it's just as easy (or easier) to modify the behaviour of the app through the Bundle editor</i>.<br /><br />
The problem with this is that you can't extend it using the same tools that it was written in. The fact that the author says, "look, here&mdash;we have a way for you extend the program, but it's not the way <b>I</b> extend the program" means there are a lot of things you just can't do. I've tried to get folks to support <a href='http://augment.rubyforge.org'>Augment</a> in Textmate, and it's simply not possible because the required functionality is just not exposed. That whole notion is rather offensive to begin with; it puts the author in a high holy place that is inaccessible to the users. Users should demand better of the programs they use.<br /><br />
Piyo: In my experience, I haven't found anything customize is good for, though some have said it's good for modifying font faces. (I just use color-theme.) My problem with it is that everything it does can be done better by writing real code instead of having code written for you. It lets you alter the behaviour of libraries without looking at the code for those libraries, but why should you be hesitant to look at the code to begin with?<br /><br />
- Just my thoughts though; maybe there's something there I'm missing.

+ content: The funny thing about Emacs not being Mac-like enough is that the default text widgets in the windowing system support things like C-a, C-e, and C-k. There's more Emacs in OS X than most folks realize.

<p>So it turns out <a href='http://rubyconf.org/talks/74'>the Seattle.rb talk</a> that was proposed half-in-jest got accepted for RubyConf 08. The talk is called "Seattle.rb Rules", and will feature a number of prestigious members discussing their projects that they work on at hack night. I've got about ten minutes to fill up for my part, and according to the proposal I'll be speaking on the following:</p>
<blockquote>Phil Hagelberg will talk about <a href='http://bus-scheme.rubyforge.org'>Bus Scheme</a>, which is a Scheme implementation that is implemented (mostly) on the bus. Phil will explore what it's like to implement an interpreter in Ruby and what kinds of things Bus Scheme could be used for.</blockquote>
<p>I'm thinking I may end up talking about something else though. Ideas include "Enough Lisp so that you won't make a Fool of yourself when the Subject comes up at Parties" and "First-class Syntax Modifications: the Final Step Ruby could take to catch up to Lisp".</p>
- <p>Any other ideas? What would the average Rubyist want to know about Bus Scheme? Leave a comment if you've got something to say.</p>

+ <p><b>Update</b>: Just finished the talk; went pretty well. The other speakers were awesome as well; be sure to catch it on Confreaks when the video goes up. My slides are <a href='/misc/bus_slides.tar.gz'>available for download</a>.</p>
