The Singularity Institute is glad to announce the formal launch of the
project to create the Flare programming language. The Singularity
Institute's Board of Directors has selected Dmitriy Myshkin as the leader
of the Flare project, under the auspices of the Singularity Institute.

attached mail follows:


I am elated and honored to announce that I am accepting the position of
leader of the Flare Programming Project, having been recommended to this
post by the board of the Singularity Institute for Artificial Intelligence
(SIAI). In accepting this position, I am aware of the great challenges of
acceptance of a new programming language/environment, but am confident in
the real-world application benefits to projects requiring sophisticated
tools such as those provided by Flare. I am looking forward to working with
the creative and talented programmers and volunteers who will constitute the
Flare open-source effort, and I hope that the effort will greatly expediate
and catalyze the GISAI project under SIAI.

Dmitriy Myshkin
