  How do you determine such things?

  I see more and more people wanting to get away from Perl because they see
  what Common Lisp can do to application development.  Maybe that's because
  I'm a Common Lisp programmer who argues that Perl solutions are ad hoc
  and need to recoded in a real programming language if they are going to
  be maintained.  Management types seem to accept this line, not just where
  I work, but where friends and colleagues work, too.  World-wide, it also
  seems interest in Lisp is increasing.  You can see that by the number of
  people who come to Lisp fora only to kick the language.  At least they
  have heard of it and find it threatening enough to fight.  That's a start.

  The United States of America, soon a Bush league world power.  Yeee-haw!
