Maybe Dave will see this and decide that blogging is "for" him, after all!

Hmmm.  All these blogging sites are a little different from one another.  Here in Google-territory, the creation of a new post presents you with a blank editing screen -- and no context within which to compose.  Elsewhere, it's more Wiki-like, and you simply insert text below (or above, if that's how you roll) all prior entries.

No matter.  They all work, and after some floundering perhaps I'll settle on a single one.
Testing +Thomas Maynard +Thomas Maynard  +carolynmaynard +Carolyn Maynard +Carolyn Maynard

So: One needs to type "+" followed by the correct case of the first name "T" or "T" -- although in my own case, "t" also works but not for Carolyn.  I'm not sure I understand it fully, but at least I know the secret now. +David Maynard +Martha Patterson ... just like that!

After a rather long time away from my Vimclojure setup, I discovered yesterday that it doesn't work!  That simply can't be: it's just Dave Ray's "VimClojure Easy" -- tested and working -- and merged back into my customary setup.  And yet...

Oh well, time to roll up my sleeves and fix it (again).  Bother.

Kick Off

What do I know about the lambda calculus?  Next to nothing ... okay, nothing at all.  But I harbor a long-time interest in "things lambda."

I was fooling with Scheme, and decided Racket (aka PLT Scheme) was the one for me.  But then I heard of Clojure, which not only is a Lisp, it's hosted on the JVM ... opening a vast library of code, ready to roll.

So, that's where my head is at the moment.  I'm constantly "seeking" (i.e. looking at languages/platforms/...) but so far nothing can dislodge Clojure for its combination of simplicity, and ubiquity (the JVM, remember?).

This blog will document my experiments, my progress, my failures, as I record my own journey of discovery.  Someday, perhaps, I'll make this all a bit more public, and it just might help someone else struggling and (unknowingly) retracing my steps.

We'll see.
