For the last year and a half, I and my recently-added collaborator Jane Losare-Lusby have been working in secret on a safe systems language that could be learned about as quickly as one can learn Go. I think we might have something worth exploring.

    This seems to address the criticisms people have with using rust for prototyping. Simplifying the mental model of lifetimes and ownership, incorporating what amounts to a manually called garbage collector, and making the level of compiler enforced strictness flexible for different phases of development all sounds promising. I look forward to what this project develops into and what use of the language reveals about software development.
