I agree with just about everything Paul Graham wrote, except the part
about macros. I mean, he is absolutely right that they were very
important for Lisp but I feel we should be thinking more graphically
and in terms of object graphs and message send patterns instead of
trying to make text a little prettier.
Thank you very much for the link - I had read another of his papers but
had missed this one.
