Hi Clojurtators,

I've gotten a couple of questions on the status of the podcast. I will be continuing in the new year. Things got busy and I decided to call this a holiday break.

I'm really looking forward to my travels to India for IN/Clojure. I'm going to be talking about how I avoid the problems of nested maps that many people fall into.

And, finally, I've started The Little Typer and I really like it!

Have a Happy New Year!

Rock on! Eric Normand <eric@purelyfunctional.tv>
