I've been reading how some developers rave about Lisp for almost ten years. I decided it was time to learn what the fuss was about, so I could have an informed opinion on it. I'm very much a Lisp and Clojure newbie, but I must say that I'm impressed with what I have learned so far.
I hope to learn more about Clojure and programming language concepts in general, and make friends with other people who like to explore computing. Maybe I'll have an easier time motivating myself to write Clojure (or Lisp, or both) in my spare time if I have a friendship with people that motivate and inspire me.
Nothing in particular.

Excellent - everyone was polite, friendly, and intelligent.
