The Swarm home page is the place to obtain both new software releases and documentation for Swarm. We welcome comments about Swarm and it's documentation.
You can also mail comments to the Swarm Support mailing list. See the Swarm mailing lists page for instructions on how to join this list.
The Swarm project was initiated by Chris Langton (now at the Swarm Corporation). Roger Burkhart (John Deere, now at VantagePoint Network), Nelson Minar (now at the MIT Media Lab), Glen Ropella (now at Swarm Corporation), Manor Askenazi (now at Coopers & Lybrand), Irene Lee (SDG), Vladimir Jojic (UIUC), and Alex Lancaster (Santa Fe Institute) have all been active in the design and programming of Swarm. Marcus Daniels is the current maintainer and lead developer at the SDG.
Much of the early development of Swarm was done by Nelson Minar, who is now at the MIT Media Lab, and Manor Askenazi and Glen Ropella (Swarm Corporation), both formerly of the SFI. The random library was written by Sven Thommesen and graciously contributed. Eric Carr and JJ Merelo have been patient Swarm users and developers. Howard Gutowitz and David Hiebeler have participated in the design process. (David is also the implementor of the original Swarm prototype.) And, many thanks to Simon Fraser, Swarm graphic designer extraordinaire. Finally, many thanks go out to the Swarm user community, particularly those who have stuck with us from the beginning.
