Two extremely interesting LtU discussions

What needs to be done? Some discussion on programming languages research in general. I like it because some of the things people brought up seemed totally out of left field to me, but still quite interesting. (For example, the education aspect of programming languages…)

The GNU extension language. Some interesting discussion on language extension, in general.  I need to go through this again more carefully, because I’m always on the lookout for good pithy rebuttals to the “why not macros?” question besides my current standard “because we want to write in languages other than lisp scheme racket,” and there seemed to be a fair amount of skepticism of macros as a solution there.
