Bye bye java! Welcome clojure.

A long time that I’ve been blogging… I lost interest in java (as a language) in favour of clojure. Finally a LISP done right (in my eyes). No more fighting with OO design that did never gave me the expression power I experience with clojure’s concept of time and identity, macros and community. I’d changed the title of my blog to reflect my personal realignment.

So, bye bye Java, you served me well over the last 16 years (wow that’s a long time!). Welcome clojure! You make me feel more powerful day for day. But beware: YMMV!
