I've never touched lisp before. I have read the odd AI article in the past,
You must be doing some really interesting stuff, if you need to be carrying
around a portable lisp development system. I can't recall all of the times
that I've been on the road and thought to myself, "Gee, if only I had a
portable lighweight system for lisp development." ;) Just kidding!
Are you involved with developing or implementing AI applications?
