I think the SC people use a system that's a list but where the archive also
has features to reply to it in forum-style. There has been talk about
Electro-Music building a similar system because of it's rather large Nord
Modular section also overlaps with the NM list but as of yet no real
decisions were made.

I like both a lot. It generally interesting to see ChucK-culture (Chulture?)
evolve but it's also interesting to see how the forum and list take
different directions. For me the practical angles of the forum also increase
the interest in the language.

Yet even still better would be to also have real-life get-togethers. I'm
trying to get something started in The Hague, it'd be nice if Dutch
(aspiring)ChucKists would give a shout.

We do have the option to attach ChucK to a remote VM over a network but I
wonder if there are features/future possibilities to make that go both ways,
leading to two or more VM's holding the same code.

Maybe connecting ChucK to a streaming program, then publishing the IP
address would already do but there are questions. for example the option to
make ChucK call the underlying OS would need to be disabled or it'd be a
HUGE security hole.

A web-based interface would be even nicer.
