“Programming could be much much easier most of the time. This unnecessary difficulty wastes the effort of professional programmers, but worse, prevents many people from programming at all. The problem is a nasty hairball of culture and technology and money that is not easily untangled”

HyperCard for “enabling millions of novices to build
Who said LiveCode lost sight of that? Oh, it was me.
Actually, I understand why RunRev (the former company name that publishes LiveCode) do not want to sell LiveCode as a HyperCard replacement.
LiveCode is multi-platform and this single fact set it apart from all previous x-talk languages.
In my humble opinion, the future of programming would be driven by artificial intelligence assistants and multiple ways of working and interfacing with the computer using voice, gaze interaction, gesture, motion, pointer, keyboard, etc…

How are all these artifical intelligence assistants, and various drivers needed for the various forms of input you suggest built?
I don’t think there are any magic beans around you can plant to have them appear.
