I learned the most by comparing videos of different projects.  Mainly  
I was thinking, if Eclipse, Python and Apache are represented in the  
gallery, then PLT ought to be there too, because it has functionality  
similar to all three of those projects.  DrScheme is a very  
significant achievement.  It has always been good, but now it is  
great, it keeps getting better, and for years it's been at the point  
where you can do almost anything with it.

I was struck that the Python video showed almost a solo effort for  
many years, until suddenly it became really popular and it really  
picked up steam.  That made me wonder what the PLT story line would  

code_swarm does not show qualitative leaps, but they can be  
highlighted with video annotations.
