This year has been frustrating for me because I wanted to go to a Smalltalk conference and to participate in Camp Smalltalk. Well, the Smalltalk conference was a little expensive and the Camp Smalltalk is held in Germany (I ain't going overseas with all of the Anti-american sentiment going on). Anyway, I just found out the International Lisp conference is going to be held next doorin New York City! How exciting is that? I learned LISP this past year and it should be a lot of fun to attend this conference! This year might just be looking up to be better!
