Peter Johnson's first draft of "An Event Driven Approach to Modelling
Object Behaviour" included the following events:


I think we need some more events. At a minimum, we need a way of
triggering an event periodically, say "The smily face winks every
twenty seconds." I can also envision a variety of multi-user network
events which would be needed, like "another user Selected the object"
or "another user Grabbed the object" or even "another user collided
with the object," etc.

Don't TASTE anything in a chemistry lab,
Don't SMELL anything in a biology lab,
Don't TOUCH anything in a medical lab,
and, most importantly,
Don't LISTEN to anything in a philosophy department."
