>From my list of "ideas without time to explore"... "Ask MoM!", a search
facility combining keywords, synonyms and verbs that returns example
Morphs (or combinations of). "MoM" stands for "Morph-on-Morphs". To
begin with it could be as simple as a dictionary look-up but could be
easily extended to trigger "event-movies". This would fill the gap
between the many good example Etoys projects already existing and the
beginners dilemma of not knowing where to start and/or how to search for
solutions to basic tasks.
Sorry if slightly off-topic, also no time to play with new version to
discover favourite features ;-)
