The Language Workbench Competition is slowly gaining momentum. Four submissions are now underway, although no time lines have been set. During SPLASH10, or actually during the DSM Workshop held there, the competition was brought to the attention of people participating. Hopefully that will lead to new submissions.

Meanwhile we are working with Pieter van Gorp, one of the organizers of the Transformation Tools Contest, to host real working versions of submissions in a virtual desktop environment, so people can actually play with them.

And now I've added a new activity to my list as well: together with Mark Dalgarno and Peter Bell, I'm involved in organizing a series of online interviews for the Model Driven Software Network. The first interview will be conducted by me, on November 15th, at 17.00 GMT, and the interviewee will be Steven Kelly, one of the founders of MetaCase.
