Intentional Software about MPS
Comments about MPS were posted at Intentional Software's website. This company, founded by Charles Simonyi in 2002, is developing its Intentional Programming(IP) project. The IP project has very similar goals to MPS and can be considered as another implementation of the Language-Oriented Programming approach.
Charles Simonyi has advocated these ideas for more than 10 years.
Recently they have started a very interesting blog at their web site, where they post articles explaining the concepts of Language-oriented programming.

Early Access to MPS and Martin Fowler's Article
Two remarkable events happened on previous week.
We started the early access program for our Meta Programming System, so anybody can download and try it from http://www.jetbrains.com/mps
Martin Fowler also published a series of articles devoted to Laguage Workbenches and Lаnguage-oriented programming. The introductory article is Language Workbenches: The Killer-App for Domain Specific Languages?.
One of these four articles considers an example of a domain-specific language, which is built using MPS. This article is A Language Workbench in Action - MPS

Language Oriented Programming - Article
My article about Language-oriented programming is published at our company's site.
Special thanks to Rob Harwood, who helped me a lot with writing the article!
Actually the process of writing the article was the following: I explained to Rob what I want to see in the given paragraph, then he wrote the text, the we have edited it together, I commented on the text, he changed it again and so on. With my poor English and lack of experience in writing articles I could never finsh this article without Rob's help.
