Joel Spolsky at LispNYC

Smart developers ∩ Windows Programmers ∩ Lisp Fans ∋ Joel Spolsky.

First, Joel lets it be known that he's tried Lisp in a Box, and has read Practical Common Lisp. Then he gets Paul Graham to insult Wall Street people on video. Now he's talking at tonight's LispNYC meeting (“This month's presentation is about next-generation language design and why Lisp is relevant by Joel Spolsky”).

"So ironic.."

Not ironic at all - it seems he has decided to take up some of the suggestions listed in the comments on his blog and really learn about Lisp. I think that my comment there may have been a little harsh to him, though, and for that I'd have to apologize if I ever meet him.

"Worked as a member of a team developing an expert system using the ART expert system shell and lisp on Symbolics and Sun workstations."
