Subject: Re: Will Java VM kill Lisp? How to fight it. From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 1997/04/08 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp,comp.lang.scheme Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Dave Dyer | This is lunacy. ISO is not a political body that you can beg or bribe | into adding pie-in-the-sky features to a proposed standard. yes, it is. this is how many features get into standards. it happens all the time, even with non-"information technology" standards. (I have long worked with standards in ISO/IEC JTC 1/SCs 2, 18, and 22, and have been an accredited member of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 18/WG 8. your lunacy is fact, and is also the reason I couldn't stomach it for very long.) #\Erik -- I'm no longer young enough to know everything.
