It's now October and Lisp in Summer Projects is coming to a conclusion. Development is officially complete so it's pencils down for our 400+ registrants as the project submissions trickle in.  ( http://LispInSummerProjects.org/submit-project )

We'd like to thank everyone for devoting so much energy in interesting and challenging work.

Our distinguished judges ( http://LispInSummerProjects.org/judges ) will shortly be looking at the submitted projects so we can award out our substantial budget thanks to:

  * ALU
  * Genworks
  * Jane Street
  * Doublet
  * LispNYC
  * ClojureNYC

Additionally tickets and speaking engagements are to be awarded to special participants at the upcoming:

  * International Lisp Conference (Montreal)
  * Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise (Philadelphia)
  * Clojure West (Portland)
  * META - Workshop on Metacomputation (Russia)
  * Lambda Jam (Chicago)
  * European Common Lisp Meeting (Berlin)
  * Clojure Conj (Washington DC)
  * European Lisp Symposium (Paris)
  * Quasiconf (Germany)
  * Racket Con (Boston)
  * International Conference on Functional Programming (Sweden)

This wouldn't be possible without countless hours of hard work by Marc, Raymond, David, Arthur and myself.

Statistics on the first 250 signups: http://lispinsummerprojects.org/Stats

60% are outside the USA, Clojure has a slight lead over CL, the ILC is the most popular conference and over half are under 25.


The summer is heating up!

Great link. Does this remind anyone of Asimov's fictional Psychohistory? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychohistory_(fictional)

If anyone is interested in Peter Norvig's Singularity Summit talk that was referenced (via a broken link), I found what I believe was the original talk: Peter Norvig of Google on The History and Future of Technological Change 

BTW - I do believe that a Singularity is coming within the next 100 years, and it could be here as soon as 2038-2045.

Sorry about the events, duplicate events and this post.  Turns out it's non-trivial to create a G+ Community event that is: public, vieweable by everyone and displayed here.  Arg.
