This is where Kent Pitman drags in Richard Gabriel.
Pitman wanted to get reader's attention, that Richard Gabriel and me has exchange some messages, because Richard Gabriel is a well-known and well-respected figure in Lisp community.
Note that Pitman said "I thought perhaps it was worth engaging you in discussion".

No conflict with anything Kent said here -- i just wanted to add some thoughts to underscore some of his remarks for those few who are clouded by the lure of the imperatives but are still capable of critical thinking.
Kent begs: > Personally, I would say it's because things in the world DO have state and > because people develop brain hardware that directly mirrors those things > about which they reason most often.
Here Kent Pitman is fucking fuck all fucked up about using jargons to impinge those lesser educated.

 myelin: Programming language checklist   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Kent M. Pitman, creator of the Common Lisp HyperSpec and key technical contributor to the Lisp language, wrote the following on Slashdot a while back in response to a question on why you should learn languages that might not necessarily be useful in your career as a programmer:
I think the thing to explain to a student is that the world is ever changing and that one cannot put ones eggs all in one basket.
But further, I would hope that the people who come to the Lisp community bring with them the ideas of other communities so that we can incorporate, rather than hide from, the good ideas that we need in order to continually be moving forward.

J13 will primarily concern itself with the standardization of that functionality necessary to support the development and deployment of programs that are efficient, modular, portable, and collaborative.
The most easily implemented solution will not necessarily dominate, but technical and economic issues of implementation are important in determining which options will be given the most serious consideration.

Pitman Training, Maidstone, has today announced the launch of its new corporate training division to complement its existing training facilities.

One of her first responsibilities will be working with clients to develop progressive training schedules and implementing the evolution from reactive training to continuous life-long learning.

 Chris Double's Radio Weblog
It works in the presence of continuations in that whenever the code block is 're-entered' by a continuation the 'entry' block is executed again, and the 'exit' block executed on leaving the code block (whether leaving naturally or via escaping through a continuation).
Kent Pitman has an article on 'UNWIND-PROTECT vs Continuations'.
In that article Kent points out that dynamic-wind really solves a different problem than UNWIND-PROTECT and explains why you cannot implement the latter in the prescence of continuations easily.

While good scientific work is done under the ACM umbrella, the typical price of ACM conferences is an outrage, and academically exclusionary, and I think academics should as far as possible see if they can do their work outside the ACM.

Part deuce of a Q&A of Kent Pitman over at slashdot.
Regarding the type analysis assertion there was an interesting post on this topic a while ago on Slashdot (believe it or not).
The reason, as I understand it, is that MrSpidey's type system is more expressive than ML (it includes union and recursive types) and consequentially the type definitions it infers are more complex.

 Slashdot | Ask Kent M. Pitman About Lisp, Scheme And More
Kent M. Pitman has been programming in Scheme and Lisp, and contributing to the design of those languages, for a long time -- 24 years.
Scheme may be better known as a teaching language, but both Scheme and Lisp have applications (as any Emacs user knows) that go far beyond this.
Now's your chance to ask him about the pros and cons of those two languages, circa 2001 A.D. Kent also has an interesting, ambivalent take on Free software that's worth noting in an atmosphere where complex issues are often oversimplified and radicalized.
