Super nice post! Detailed and well-written.

eight looks interesting. But it took me 2 minutes to understand it was the name of the language. Maybe write it capitalized, "Eight". "eight" is quite confusing.

"Everything" is a closure, the 'leak idea, etc.: cool, interesting stuff!

Thank you.

I'm still waffling on 'Eight' or 'eight' --- in my notes I write it '8', which is even less clear ;)

Whatever you call the language, there should be an editor scriptable in it called ACHT: Another Curvy Hacking Tool. XD

Hah! Then code snippets can be 'Pieces of Eight' and libraries must be Reales.

And the qualitative feeling of programming in this language? Fullness. 'Cause you just Eight.
