I just gave the first presentation about Mint in the COMP 600 graduate seminar  at Rice. The slides for “Mint: A Multi-stage Extension of Java”  are available (PowerPoint , PDF , view embedded ). This weekend, I was kicking myself why I had volunteered for this talk out of turn, but it was good practice, and I’m a philanthropist and got the other grad students pizza that way.
Thanks for the opportunity to speak and for the good feedback!
Finally, the Java Mint Blog has a new URL: www.javamint.org . We currently also have some problems with the implementation URL ; for now, you can use http://mint.concutest.org  as a resource hub for everything Mint-related .
