Trying the io programming language

A couple of days ago I stumbled upon the io programming language. I've been reading about it a bit at a time, and I'm really impressed by it. It's now on the list of things I want to learn more about and try out.

"Io is a small, prototype-based programming language. The ideas in Io are mostly inspired by Smalltalk (all values are objects), Self (prototype-based), NewtonScript (differential inheritance), Act1 (actors and futures for concurrency), LISP (code is a runtime inspectable/modifiable tree) and Lua (small, embeddable)."
