Something old, something new

Sorry for the silence. This has been a scheduling thing mostly: I managed to schedule ‘breaking my arm’ for about three days after ‘starting a new job’, and together with the ongoing project of ‘being a new Dad’ (I plan to pivot that one into just ‘being a Dad’ if and when I finally feel like I know what I’m doing – so maybe in about 20 years or so) this has left not much time for discretionary writing.

Something old: a couple of months ago Vsevolod Dyomkin emailed me to ask if I wanted to be featured in his series of interviews with Lisp hackers (or, in my case, former Lisp hackers). After keeping him waiting for unsnsionably long – partly due, of course, to the aforementioned bone breakage – finally I have sent him my answers and he has posted them

(I can’t decide if I’m actually serious about writing something justifying the existence of ASDF, or if I’m just going to let it lie. It can probably be summarised as “it made sense at the time”)
