 GUI/event loop programming is Continuation Passing - paper

A number of people have asked me about a paper I presented this summer
in which I (attempt to) demonstrate that the event-loop programming
style currently endemic to Graphical User Interface programming is
nothing more than a twisted form of Continuation Passing Style
programming in disguise.  It also shows how nice it is when
continuations are callbacks.

Anyone interested can find the article from my home page at:

For the braver among you, there is also my recent dissertation on
Dreme, a distributed Scheme with mobile objects, among other things.
