International Lisp Conference

I went to Boston Monday through Wednesday to attend the 2009 International Lisp Conference. I stayed in the Cambridge Hyatt Regency, and the conference was in the MIT Stata Center. I walked across campus, from the hotel, near the BU Bridge, each day. Here are some photos taken on my travels.

European Lisp Workshop?

Bill, any interest in attending one of the European conferences (European Lisp Workshop, European Common Lisp Meeting, European Lisp Symposium) one of these years?

Interest? A little.

Interest? A little. Business relevance? Likely low. Though it would be nice to see you at one.

ILC 2009 got me so re-excited about Lisp that I've started porting Trubanc to lisp. One of the benefits will be that I can deliver a combined client and server as a single double-clickable executable, for Mac, Windows, and Linux (different executable images, of course, but a single file, or maybe two, for each).

I'll put up the lisp code on github real soon now.
