This document describes the courting of Linda (a coordination language) by Russell (a computation language), and the subsequent conception of their child Lucinda. Mother and baby are both doing well.A number of disadvantages with current Linda implementations are discussed, and a new language, Lucinda, is proposed to overcome them. Lucinda provides multiple, typed tuple spaces, polymorphism, and a novel approach to data structuring and storage.
