This is an inspiring story of the use of Clojure along with many other
technologies to build a flight delay prediction tool

Read it through.. it's quite the hacker's dream:

Hadoop + Cascading + Amazon EC2/S3 + Ruby on Rails (Heroku) + Clojure

Who wouldn't love to work on something like this?

I wonder if Clojure is superseding Common Lisp as the "handyman's
Lisp". I've been using it recently to toy around with various AI ideas
I've had for a while, and I'm rather enjoying the elegance and clarity
of the language.

Has anyone else been working with Clojure this month?
