* New Scheme
| With each year that passes, scheme becomes more irrelevant to the

  Yes!  This is good news.

| Solicit help from the Common Lisp community and draw upon their extensive

  The past is not more important than the future, despite what your culture
  has taught you.  Your future observations, conclusions, and beliefs are
  more important to you than those in your past ever will be.  The world is
  changing so fast the balance between the past and the future has shifted.
