I think this is a good idea.  We certainly need to be positive as Aaron's book 
was a boon for GNUstep.  The corrections I posted on the webste were not 
criticisms so much as they were simply... well... corrections of things that he 
got wrong.

I think the list of things you've mentioned are good.   I think, as you've 
said, it's best to approach things from where GNUstep is today.  I will let you 
know, if I think of anything.

My skype id is, of course: greg_casamento

If you would like to reach me to discuss anything prior to the show, please 
feel free to do so.

Later, GJC

Hi all,

there's a podcast called CocoaCast <http://www.cocoacast.com> by  
Boris Klaydman and Russell Homsy, where they go through the chapters  
of Hillegass' "Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X" book discussing the  
concepts therein.  Well, I've been asked to join them in an episode  
on GNUstep ;-).  Any suggestions of things to talk about would be  
welcome, bear in mind the audience is likely to be Cocoa-centric, but  
mainly Cocoa newbies.

I thought of trying to avoid explicitly complaining about problems in  
the GNUstep chapter of the book, and instead describing the current  
state of GNUstep play.  In that:

- overview of the components -make, -base, -gui, -back and how  
they're analogous to Cocoa Foundation/AppKit
- code portability between Cocoa and GNUstep (and using -make and - 
base with Cocoa lib combo), NIB support, Windows/Linux/etc. platforms
- Summer of Code (there may be a few students listening to the  
podcast ;-)
- some apps (mainly dev-apps like ProjectCentre and GORM)
- GUI theming, possibly...

any amendments or additions would be muchly welcome ;-).  I've asked  
for write access to the wiki, once I've got that I'll create a page  
with an outline of the podcast material.  I don't know yet when the  
episode will be recorded.
