Letting out steam

Hobby hacker.

I'm teaching myself Lisp, through the excellent books Practical Common Lisp and Paradigms of AI Programming, and I've been at it for a couple of months now. It truly feels like I'm expanding my field of view in the programming world, which to this day has been BASIC, x86-ASM, C, C++, Java, Haskell & Python. Once the parens disappeared, I saw the beauty of Lisp. :-)

Daytime, I'm a C++ hacker at Opera Software (you know, the browser), doing ports to various Linux-based set-top boxes, music players and what have you. In order to not go crazy at the macro assembler that is C/C++, I'm letting out steam by reading c.l.l, my books, and writing about the things I learn, so my experiences can be of help to other Lisp-newbies (I hope!)
