More Languages

Since the last post I’ve done read more on language design and usage, mostly around the “worse is better” and the political dichotomy of language features. I’ve started reading things on D, Haskell, and Clojure, just to get some perspective on the discussion. As a primarily C++ programmer, I’m well aware of the tradeoffs in style/politics/features that make a language popular vs powerful or fun. I’ve kept my experiences with Dart and Go in mind as I read these meta-language dissensions.
