Lisp-Backed Websites, the Old School Way

I was surprised to learn from Tim Converse that this site and this site were lisp-generated. But of course Tim was one of those nice civilized AI people before he and troutgirl became PHP fans.

(Those are some pretty uninformative links up there, eh? Did you know that google gives a lot of weight to the text of links that points to a site? So take a guess as to what the #1 google result is for a search on "this site". No, it's not that, but you're close.)

(Short Tim anecdote: Me: "Hey, are you the Tim Converse that Clifford Pickover mentions in this book as having invented infinite chess?" Tim: "All I did was post the rules to a mailing list, so I guess I am.")

Ack! Did he tell people about the whole MCL thing? I thought we had agreed never to divulge our dark secret.

I bet you wouldn't pick on Google so much if we
used lisp. :)
