I’m a librarian and pretty new to lisp (but loving every second of it!). Right now I’m working on a web application (very, very much in the prototype stage) that would allow people to catalog any type of ‘things’ they wanted by initially describing the properties of the particular thing and then creating records based on those properties. Essentially it’s a very simple interface to allow anyone (even people who can’t program) to play with simple objects, with the practical side that it would enable an individual to literally catalog anything that they can describe: socks, empty beer bottles, coffee beans, whatever. See, mere mortals can use lisp!
