Investigating further yesterdays story from
posted by jacob I
found some interesting stuff by Paul
Paul Graham is a Lisp hacker and advocate, and has written the "ANSI Common Lisp" and
Lisp" books, the latter is available for download. He also
maintains a a Lisp FAQ.
He has also written an excellent article called "Revenge
of the Nerds" with some extra code
examples and some very good comments from
readers. Highly recommended.
A long time ago I also read Grahams "Beating
the Averages" story together with a very interesting
email about the code behind the Orbitz
airline ticket booking system, which is also the subject of "Orbitz Reaches
New Heights" in new.architect
