Hey Martin,

Good to hear from you! Thanks for the computational chemistry links! I have a passing interest in that.

I have not used CL since the ITA / Google reservation system project stopped.  :-(

I did a bunch of JavaScript for a while, and pretended it was Lisp. Now I’m at a small robotics startup, and just in the process of moving the group toward Julia. For some Lidar point cloud and camera perception stuff, and other analysis in the autonomous vehicle space. I’m liking Julia a lot. Probably because they made a lot of the same language design choices we did with Dylan. And a few that I wish we had made.  ;-)
