Lisp echo chamber
Thursday, January 19, 2006

I hate to take part in the Lisp echo chamber, but Bill Clementson has an excellent point:

But ... the use of Lisp allowed them to develop products that pushed them to the front of the pack. They were subsequently bought out; however, the fact that their Lisp tools were subsequently discarded does not throw a negative shadow on Lisp. Lisp got them to where they needed to be to succeed - definitely a quality that entrepreneurs want in a programming language!

Now I've gotta go and get me some of that entrepreneur stuff everyone keeps talking about!
