 T-minus 7 days to OtterLaunch!

 Please join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, August 14th from 7:00
 to 9:00 at Trinity Lutheran Church.

 Perry Metzger Presents:  Otter, a new dialect of Lisp.

     Otter is strongly influenced by Scheme and Python, with some
     bits of inspiration from Common Lisp, Perl and other
     languages thrown in, as well as some strange ideas Perry
     came up up with on his own.  The results may be pleasing to
     some and are guaranteed to be repulsive to others. If you're
     tired of waiting for Paul Graham to release Arc, you may
     find Otter interesting. If you don't care if Paul Graham
     ever releases Arc, you may also find Otter interesting. In
     the unlikely event that all goes according to plan, a
     prototype Otter interpreter.

 Perry Metzger is a long time ne'er-do-well and agent provocateur. He
 subsists largely on cruciferous vegetables, and rarely turns down a
 chance to nap. Besides designing Otter, he is currently learning how to
 distinguish different organic solvents by scent alone. He lives in New
 York with a purple haired woman and many elderly computers whom he cares
 for in their golden years.
