Interesting suggestion of yet another use for Etoys. Obvious extension would be to control the timing of the back-and-forth; and then some Eliza-type logic...
I'm not sure about Eliza type logic would be well covered by Etoys, but as discussed on the squeakland mailing list, timing change is easy. I uploaded a different version with timing and possible multi-party conversation.
(I really hope that it would encourage people to modify and upload more things...)
This is a great example of how you can use holders for conversations. I learned a lot from this simple project.
This is great. I could see how this can be used to create dynamic eBooks (or comic book type stories). Thank you!
Christine and Cherry,
For "use" to build stuff, please check out the "Conversation 2" project (http://squeakland.org/showcase/project.jsp?id=7824) that has more "features". This one can be considered a stepping stone for getting more advanced features used in the other one but less "usable" for building contents.
