SQUEAK didn't happen by itself. It's
the product of a number of years of work of a small core group of
Squeakers, most of whom are pictured above.
Three of the group - Alan
Kay, Dan Ingalls, and Ted
Kaehler -met at Xerox PARC in the early 70s and, with only a
few gaps, have worked together for many of the intervening years:
at PARC, Apple, Disney and now at Hewlett-Packard..
Scott Wallace worked at Apple
on the LISA, then with Dan on Fabrik (Dan's iconic programming system),
and then with Alan's "Vivarium" school project.
John Maloney was a "graduate
student of a graduate student" of Alan's, was a principal member
of the SELF group at Sun, and then joined Apple to work with Alan's
Learning Concepts Group.
and Mike Rueger were graduate
students at the University of Magdeburg in East Germany. They found
Squeak on the Internet and Mike encouraged Andreas to do the Windows
and NT ports. Andreas joined the group in '98 and Mike followed shortly
Kim Rose joined Alan's Vivarium
project in 1986 at Apple and has worked on his educational projects
since. Pat Brecker is an assistant to Alan and Kim and joined the
Squeak Team in November '96.
