So, I’m going. It seems from this blog that all I do in the Lisp world is attend conferences. Oh well.

The line-up is, as usual, intriguing. I have no idea what to expect from Kuroda Hisao of Mathematical Systems, Inc. David McClain knocked it out of the park last time he spoke, so he might suffer from excessive expectations this time. Martin Simmons of LispWorks is a generally good presenter (I seem to recall). Dimitri Simos is to talk of Piano, which looks interesting, has enviable pricing, and a special secretPaul Tarvydas promises to talk of fun and profit, and who could ask for more. Dan Weinreb will presumably give the convinced lispers version of his tech-talk. And I’ll finally(?) hear about RacerPro from Michael Wessel.

All this without mentioning the traditional ECLM boat trip (sans Kenny this year), dinner and lightning talks. What could go wrong?

P.S. For some reason I’m flying out of Hamburg late afternoon on Monday, so if anyone’s up for lunch that day, let me know.
