in the recent “is clojure dying” crisis, saw this. that's esr. I don't like esr, but this Phil MV is a scumbag in my book.
the worst atrocities in history are done by those who think they are morally superior.

Reasonably Programmable Syntax
My thesis introduces typed literal macros (TLMs). TLMs take the tedium out of constructing and pattern matching over composite data structures by allowing library providers to define new type-specific literal forms (think list literals, set literals, HTML literals, regex literals, SQL literals and so on.) These literal forms come equipped with powerful abstract reasoning principles -- clients can reason about program text directly, rather than about the underlying literal expansion, and they need not worry about syntactic conflicts. We are in the process of implementing TLMs in Tidy.
I design programmable front-ends for typed functional programming languages. My goal is to take the tedium out of writing clean, compositional code.
