Thank you Josh for sharing this. I remember fondly reading Brad Cox's book 
while i was still at University. The concept of Soft-ICs, reusable software 
components, won me over for Objective-C. So even a long time before starting to 
contributing to GNUstep  I learned and liked the language.
Thank you Brad for giving it to us!
