Someone posted that they heard that MIT was is some way involved with the
design and/or an implementation of Dylan. Is this true?
Gack! Another RWK! Well, we RWK's should stick to gether, so
here's a cut at answering your question.
There are lots of ways that MIT is tied in. A few of them:
1) Many of Dylan's designers went to MIT.
2) The first publicly-available implementation done to the Dylan
book, is called "Thomas", and is written in MIT-Scheme. (This
was done by people here at DEC-CRL; some of the people who
implemented it used to be at MIT).
3) Various people at MIT participate in the design discussions.
There are probably other ties as well.
