The Python Paradox

http://www.paulgraham.com/pypar.html

I learnt Python afew years ago. I’ve moved onto Ruby for day to day tasks and am studying Scheme and Common Lisp when I can spare a moment.

Today I was watching another couple of videos from the Abelson and Sussman collection. It’s about 9G of divx movies. I’m pretty dedicated to my lisp education – I’m only on 32k dialup connection. I watched 6a&b about streams (again) and then got onto the very amusing lectures on meta circular evaluation (7a&b). Very funny – a must see for any lisp enthusiast.

I was also reviewing multithreading issues in Common Lisp implementations via the slides from Roger Corman’s talk on the subject.
