Subject: Re: some stuff about the 2002 International Lisp Conference in SF From: Erik Naggum <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: 10 Nov 2002 18:59:21 +0000 Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Message-ID: <email@example.com> * Andre van Meulebrouck | I agree that consumers vote with $$ and reputations, but I think they are | voting against LISP not for it. So much group think. Is there no word for "individual" in your language? | For instance, .Net isn't language centric; how about targeting .Net with CL? .NET is too lacking. | How about adding extensions to Scheme to make it of interest to real | world applications? Ask someone who cares over in comp.lang.scheme. | When you see the herd is going Microsoft, target Microsoft technologies: | dovetail CL with COM! When you see the herd going in any particular direction, choose another. | I would especially like to see .Net targeted. Microsoft might seem like | the Roman Empire to LISP; but the good news is it is very LISP friendly | (if the LISP world only knew that!). It may be Scheme friendly (JVM is), but it is not Common Lisp friendly. Please upgrade your brain with this patch: "Scheme and Common Lisp are not interchangeable languages in /any/ respects". Thank you. -- Erik Naggum, Oslo, Norway Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder. Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
