Lisp is for Entrepreneurs
I am really not sure what I think of the points this article makes. But as it's interesting and thought I thought I would share it with you.
"So, Yahoo acquires Viaweb and rewrites it. The end result is inferior
to the original Lisp-based product. Sony acquires Naughty Dog and
decides to eliminate the Lisp-based development infrastructure. The end
result is an inferior game development environment. Sure, there were
probably a lot of reasons for these decisions by Yahoo and Sony
(probably none of which had anything to do with productivity or
technical excellence - large companies have other drivers which have
more importance than these two); however, the end result for both companies has
been something inferior to what they originally acquired. " Bill Clementson's Blog: Lisp is for Entrepreneurs
