This is an interesting question Andy, I'm also working with Meteor (being
myself a long time Smalltalker) because as a freelance, lot of times I need
to use the tools that the customers wants. And in the last times I saw an
increasing demand of this sort of tools (Some JS framework - NodeJS -
MongoDO (or other noSql)).

Of course, I miss a lot the Smalltalk style of work, but, also I must point
some strengths in this client based style of development.

As a friend said, seems that the times of server centric applications is
gone... (?)

Thanks for make this question, I also want to know the opinions of the
other smalltalkers here.
