I've just seen Theo's call for papers for the Dynamic Languages Symposium in October and I'm going to write a paper on Cog. Alas I see that the ACM has yet to provide any templates other that for Word and LaTeX. I'm a fan of Apple's Pages word processor for Mac OS X, part of their iWork suite, as I'm sure many of you are. Anyway, I have this morning contacted the ACM's Electronic Publishing Manager, Gerald Murray, and he has asked me to send him an email asking for such a template. He can't make the decision on his own but has agreed to submit the request higher up the chain, and as we discussed it would help if I could add additional voices in support. So if you are interested in a Pages ACM paper template or you're interested in other researchers having access to the same please reply to this email, indicating whether you're an ACM member or not, and whether you've submitted a paper or three beforehand, and I'll add your name and email address to my submission. Also feel free to spread this request far and wide to other Mac-centric folk who would be interested. I'll send the email on Monday, April 4th. And just so you're sure, this is /not/ an April Fool.
