so, let me play straight man here. (ironically enough.)

if LambdaMOO is/was such a success, what are you going to do to 
top it? that is, if it achieved a critical mass of expressive 
fertility, what was yet lacking that you would add?

if it failed at some point, clearly it wasn't in the fecundity
department. (cow-patties galore...) so maybe you have some other
ideals in mind aside from expressive fertility.
