contradicting edits: Influenced by[edit]

Dear 69.230.180.73 , please refrain from your anonymous attempts to remove items from the Influenced by list. AgentSheets with it's drag and drop environment is not only obviously similar, it is prior art (see various Visual Languages proceedings) and was personally demonstrated to Alan Kay by the creator of AgentSheets at an Apple Hill event in front of a public audience. Ask Alan. — Preceding unsigned comment added by KaptainFire (talkcontribs) 22:07, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

Where can it be downloaded from?[edit]

This is not very clear in the article.

Wikipedia is not a web directory, so I don't think we should expect articles to list download sites. However the main Etoys site http://www.squeakland.org/ links to some download locations, and the OLPC site links to others. --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 14:07, 3 October 2007 (UTC)
The site was revamped in 2009, and now has a central download page: http://www.squeakland.org/download/ --Hroðulf (or Hrothulf) (Talk) 14:02, 29 January 2010 (UTC)

Criticism?[edit]

It is a bit surprising that there is no discussion or references concerning criticism of Etoys use in education. There is a lot of discussion and thought as to the benefit or detriment of this educational technique amongst teachers and integrators that implement OLPC projects and I was surprised to see nothing close to a frank reference to discussion on this issue. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.21.228.226 (talk) 00:22, 10 July 2012 (UTC)
