Ahh..META II [1]. This is awesome. Was just mentioned again in the "Joe Armstrong interviewing Alan Kay" talk [2][3]. One of Alan's favourite papers. Joe: "Dan said if you look at this, you will lose a month of your life. And I did" Or words to that effect.

Also the basis for OMeta[4]. I have to admit I've been avoiding it so far in order not to get diverted from architectural insights[5] but this may just be accessible enough to dive on in.
