Ahh. Interesting things are developing in this middleware I call Figure.

Its virtual machine has settled down to something that has one register (called context) which is a pointer into a web of nodes. Programming this beast is quite convenient (to me), because you can navigate and manipulate the nodes as if they were a filesystem.

Did I mention there's no stack? Tee-hee.

Now I'm implementing the meta-object protocol so that different namespaces can be linked into the node system, such as the Unix filesystem, the DNS, machine registers, etc.

All in all, it's one step closer to eliminating the need for programming languages.
