i don't normally do this, but this is a *great* article:
it should shed a fair amount of light on all those language wars (and
show that really, they all just want to be lisp ;).
the later points in the description of "what made lisp different"
(about 1/3 of the way in) exactly describes several "emerging"
commonalities i've been seeing in recent languages, but i hadn't been
able to put into words until now.
