Through the history of computing, we've seen various development tools come out that tried to change how programs were written. Apple's HyperCard, for instance, or the first version of Visual Basic, are two such attempts that stick out in our minds (VB actually did change how Windows programs are written today. The modern Visual Studio owes many of its metaphors to VB, and Alan Cooper, who designed the prototypes that became the "Visual" part of VB).

So, we're wondering if Ward sees anything like that on the horizon.

Do you see anything groundbreaking coming up for developers?
