great informative background on Lisp. Also appreciate your blog and emails which always expand my thinking with new ideas and context.
do you have any thoughts on status of Clojure on CLR? it seems to be both acknowledged by its creators and deemphasized as well.
Clojure on CLR just needs more work. Rich Hickey is the original creator but got tired of doing everything twice to support JVM and CLR. There are maintainers but I think they need more help. Arcadia is Clojure + Unity3D, which is CLR.
FYI: One data point, we've been using Arcadia (and ClojureCLR) and it seems to "just work." I think there may be some newer Clojure features that may not be there yet but I haven't run across any (yet.)
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
