hip languages

Ruby's suddenly become hip due some "Rails" thingy*, but I could've told you about Ruby years ago. I predict the next hip thing in languages will be fancy type systems: you already see static type declarations leaking into Perl 6 and Python 3000.

And speaking of that, the Best April Fool's joke so far: The Fate Of LAMBDA in PLT Scheme v300 (which only makes sense in the context of Python 3000). But the Gmail front page is pretty good too.

I took a break today to read the Parsec manual, but I generally feel like I don't have time for hobbyist computing anymore. :(

* I actually know what this is, but it's funnier to write it that way.
