Poignancy, Panic, and Opposition to equality

I thought I might be able to get my Web Dev videos out before I went out of town. But that's this Thursday, so, no, I'm not going to kill myself to finish them. The masses that are waiting for them can wait a little longer. I can say that they will be awesome. That is all.
In other news, Clojure is still awesome.

I remember first hearing about Ruby after it had exploded. It was already old. A friend of mine suggested I read the Poignant Guide, and I was both weirded out and amazed. I never finished it because I never got to any actual code before I gave up. But the feeling it left me with stayed. That feeling of wonder and magic that infused the book. The feeling of my rational mind being totally powerless to understand what was going on. I don't know if such a feeling goes well with Clojure, but if you're into that, here's the start of a translation from Ruby to Clojure.
