The blogged wandering of Robert W. Anderson

And now we scheme

It is refreshing that Scheme (the variant of Lisp) is getting so much attention right now.

Check out www.schemers.org for Scheme resources (thanks to Steve Maine for the pointer).

It was used as a teaching language at Cal. Scheme was, without a doubt, the only mind-expanding programming language I’ve ever had the pleasure to ingest learn and use.

paul graham seems to be a big factor behind scheme getting a lot more attention. in hackers & painters he has some list of the perfect language’s attributes and ranks various common languages against it. i think he states that ruby is the closest among the commonly used web development languages.

Thanks for the comment — I’ll take that as a recommendation for the book. I’ll check it out.
Cheers.
