Danger Mouse

Memories of Scheming.

I was discussing programming languages with a co-worker today, and we got into a discussion about Lisp/Scheme. He had never used it, but had heard a lot about it, and was very interested in talking to someone who had used it.

So, I spent an hour or so explaining to him some of the concepts behind it, the reasons and ways it works, some implementation details, etc. I then showed him a little sample code and explained how it worked.

He now wants to play with Scheme more on his own.

And I've discovered a serious desire to play with Scheme myself again. It's been too long since I've done anything with it. ;-)
