A reddit user asked what's a good, modern LISP to learn and among the usual cruft about Common Lisp (which is cool) came Scheme (flavours), Clojure, Rebol (surprising, but it's actually quite cool, shame on licensing) and newLISP.

As usual, our newlispers have been downvoted, so after 'rescuing' them, i think some good things can be said over there so it takes some notice?"> ... _to_learn/">



Seems to come up every three months... :)

Talking of the highly esteemed Clojure, I read this recently...">//

It's not just newLISP!
