Here's some interesting lispish stuff I've been able to find, the things that aren't always talked about.

I hadn't drunk for months before the Lispniks Cologne meeting. What a rowdy bunch; even the day after I was saying weird things.

Python is the red pill. Lisp is Zion. If anyone has information on interesting things like the "limits of mathematics' power" link I mention below, please write it anywhere on this page or email me at (tjg-lisp at pentaside.org).
