Sometimes, I care to be succint.

!!! What I have been wanting since I was first forced into the world of imperative programming: a book written by Guy Steele! The Java Language Specification

Moral of the story: good things can happen when you're looking for a good Java book before the sun rises.

Must really get back to Essentials of Programming Languages, too. Must know about continuations like the back of my hand. And must really really finish Haskell. Must know more about monads. Fwah, perhaps really will sit in front of computer all summer long.

    James Gosling was a Lisp-head from way back; lots of Lisp people are on more than speaking terms with Java, which I suspect you've worked out already :-) . What's weird is how little there is to read from Lisp people on Javascript, which is a universally deployed language with closures, lambdas and something very close to s-expressions.
