Welcome Sebastian!

You're not alone; the list already had 23 subscribers as of the time I 
got it working last night, and two more have subscribed since then.

NA has an active Smalltalk community, with users and developers of VW, 
VA, GemStone, Squeak, Dolphin,...

Personally, I work for GemStone, doing work in VW, VA, and GemStone, but 
also have contributed to the Squeak and Pharo projects.

That's right, I did a quick demo of using GemStone for persistence in VA

I agree, and you're welcome! My part of setting up the list is the easy 
part, now all of you need to have interesting discussions.
