F3: a whole new take on scripting

If you like scripting, you should take a look at Chris Oliver's weblog. He mostly discusses a scripting language that he's been working on called F3. It's mind-bendingly cool. It's a client-side scripting engine, rather than one of the usual server-side languages. It's designed for doing very graphically cool applications. He's got lots of demos in is blog, mostly directly runnable. In particular, you really must run through his interactive tutorial. The most mind-bendingly cool feature (and a little tricky to understand) is F3's dependency-based evaluation. Magic. Have some fun with it.
