Sam Tesla gave the whirlwind presentation on Lisp that left the group simply breathless. It was great. He went through all of the basics with wit, charm, and knowledge. I even forgave him for his quips on Scheme (which he knows that I love). He mainly stayed on the language and ventured a little bit into history (but, really that could be a two hour plus discussion in itself). All in all, if you missed it, shame on you! In the meantime, I'm going to work on Sam to do a sequel. Two hours is too short on such a cool subject.
The next meeting looks to be equally great: Python and XML by Mike Hostetler. See you all there!
