I have seen a lot of people taking photos at ILC, most of them more professionally than me. It would be great if those could dump their memory cards to flickr

Conference Reports

Christophe Rhodes is one of the people blogging about the conference on Planet Lisp

Hooray, it's actually international—that is, it's not in the USA. In fact it is in Cambridge (the real one), and it is going swimmingly. Well. It's certainly nice to have of the order of 120 interesting people around; there's a good breadth and depth to the field, what with academics, hobbyists, and the occasional person who uses lisp for Real Work: sometimes even SBCL explicitly. The organization has been impeccable so far, so well done Ravenbrook, and particularly Nick Levine.
Worth reading them all...
