Lisp and cool AI

One of the few reasons I became a computer scientist was because I was facinated with machines acting intelligently - A.I.

Years of reading articles and books, all you heard about with the state of the art in A.I. involved lisp. Low and behold lisp was decades ahead of it's time and would say is linguistically on par with today modern languages and still in some ways superior.

I have done a little bit of lisp programming, but now as much as I would like, only time will tell how far I will get but here are 3 really good lisp resources two of which are free books.

All this fluster and energy could otherwise be put to good use saving animals that actually need saving.....

A funny part of all this is that tobystew.com has a listing off all the savetoby clones , even if you don't think this funny the viral phenomenon of how this is spreading is remarkable.

Information and the world

Often I spend tons of time researching particular idea and really would like to share them with the world. Other times I just come across facinating information. Every method ends up being too much work to maintain. I have a wiki I use to save information but that is not very permanent and often is for scribes.

Most prominently is all the times I have figured out how to do something I could not find a mention of online and would have liked to post it for the next guy. So here it is my blog ...
