Scheme vs. Common Lisp

Here's an old but sort of funny story about optimization, language design and language implementation: Scheme vs. Common Lisp. [via lispmeister.]

It took me 20 minutes to convert the code, which ended up being about one third as many lines.

Philip Greenspun has some other MIT AI Lab reminiscing too.
