This is language I devised for transforming the object structures describable by JSON; dicts, lists, simple types. It is built from the same structures, and the data is code is data. It's Turing complete; It's really an odd type of Lisp. Hopefully you find it interesting, suggestions are welcome.

“I’m not one of those big tree-hugging people,” he said, guiding a pickup around the OCI Solar site. “In places like this where there is nothing going on, where there is lots of land, solar makes sense.”

"I don't want to go to school," Bolduc told his parents, the crushing reality of his situation having yet to fully dawn on his naïve consciousness. "I want to play outside with my friends."

While Bolduc stood waiting for the bus to pick him up on his first day of elementary school, his parents reportedly were able to "see the wheels turning in his little brain" as the child, for the first time in his life, began to understand how dire and hopeless his situation had actually become.
CARPENTERSVILLE, IL—Local first-grader Connor Bolduc, 6, experienced the first inkling of a coming lifetime of existential dread Monday upon recognizing his cruel destiny to participate in compulsory education for the better part of the...

The legacy of falling population and continued push into urban centers is abandoned homes in the suburbs.

I predict that in the 2020s we'll have a distributed solar revolution; automation will kill jobs, but also enable people to live with less money in places with relatively little infrastructure. They'll need access to sunlight, so cheap land away from infrastructure will be necessary.

Swathes of people will be shed from the cities, unable to find more than marginal work, unable to afford to live there. They'll move back out to the abandoned suburbs and countryside, and begin a grand experiment in a new way of semi-offgrid living, using practically inexhaustible power and automation (robots!)

In terms of this article, I think these places will be wanted again, but maybe not for 10 to 20 years.
 
Some eight million ghost homes across Japan are the most visible sign of human retreat in a country where the population is forecast to fall by a third over the next 50 years.

+John Hardy didn't vote for Abbott thankfully that particular idiocy was defeated, but the general direction away from common sense regarding copyright is certainly there.

Over the last week or so I've been struggling to give birth to this thing: a transformation language for JSON derivable data, made out of that data, which is Turing complete. It's similar to my previous language bOTL, but turned into Lisp. If you like languages, you'll enjoy this, and you can play with it in a live web based editor.

Thanks +John Hardy for all your help so far!!
