From: dto1138 <email@example.com> Subject: [announce] Worcester Lispers mailing list Newsgroups: comp.lang.lisp Date: Sat, 9 Oct 2010 11:09:35 -0700 (PDT) After discussions with a few people, I've started a mailing list called Worcester Lispers for people in and around the Worcester, Massachusetts area including greater Boston. The Worcester Lispers group is a way for people to meet up, give presentations and workshops, exchange ideas, and share knowledge of Lisp programming. Topics will hopefully include more "everyday" programming issues and tools, as well as more academic topics. I'm currently working on securing a venue for initial meetings. Please join the discussion group if you are interested. Let's make something happen! Here is the google groups page: http://groups.google.com/group/worcester-lispers Thanks everyone. David
