Re: [qldjvm] Want to hear Rich Hickey (inventor of Clojure) speak?

How about a summary of Clojure, partially based on the talks.

I suspect the big news is the return of real macros, which is something most people have never heard about.  Very powerful.  Too powerful?

Sounds interesting.  Lisp is a giant compared to C grade languages, nice to see some revival.  

Craig, do you think you could present a summary at a QJVM meeting?   This would make a good talk.

Just because it is possible to push twigs along the ground with ones nose
does not necessarily mean that that is the best way to collect firewood.
