(I am going to play Bill Clementson for one post.)
Tait Stevens started an interesting thread on comp.lang.lisp titled Practical Lisp: What are you working on, really?:
I'm a Lisp newbie, and having fun learning how things work. I've been reading the newsgroups for a couple of months, but haven't gotten a great impresssion of what people are *actually* using Lisp for.
I'd go first, but have no active project.
Any takers for the question "What are you doing in Lisp, right now?"
That triggered several replies from people who are using Common Lisp for commercial, educational, and hobby projects.
Personally, I've been working on a website to help my father-in-law sell fishing lures. In my spare time I've also worked on programs to generate flash and process TrueType files. After seeing all the amazing Flash cartographic applications on display this election, I'd like to get my act together and write a library for generating GIS-related flash visualizations.
