The coupling of a development environment for web applications that is itself a web application leads to all sorts interesting possibilities.

Wheat's main programming tool is a Wiki for coding. Where else can this go?

When I started on Wheat, I wasn't sure that taking the ideas of object URLs and publishing to the extreme were justified. I'm still not sure, but I've begun to see that there are some great new ideas in programming that lie in that direction.

What happens when you meld blogging with Wheat? CodeBlogging? I'm not sure what it is, but I'm sure you can do it in Wheat, and I can't wait to start!
