Monthly Boston Lisp Meeting: report

March 5, 2008

Thanks to François-René Rideau (fare) for organizing last night’s inaugural Monthly Boston Lisp Meeting (Note: future meetings will apparently happen on the fourth Monday of the month.)

I’m surprised I haven’t seen reports on Planet Lisp yet, but I had an enjoyable time. I certainly didn’t meet everyone there, but did get to meet nyef (who showed off some of his fearless adventuring into bare-metal Lisp) and Brad Parker, got to see Kent Pitman in person, and a few other notables, as well as numerous ITA Lispers. Discussion was wide-ranging (I heard only a fraction of the multiple conversations going on), and some of the most interesting stuff to me was discussion about the background of Dylan and Lispers at Apple in the 1990s.

There was at least one person taking pictures; I’m sure they’ll pop up somewhere in the blogosphere.

Looking forward to more great meetings in the future!
