I’m starting to immerse myself more in the Racket world these days. And recently, I’ve had more troubles with my server and WordPress blogs. So I’m looking into Greg Hendershott‘s Frog (Frozen Blog) to see if this would be useful.

I’m thinking of porting some of my lower-traffic, not very visually sophisticated, blogs to it. So … first step, a quick and dirty wordpress-to-frog script.

It’s a hack and there are caveats. But it more or less worked. After a bit of tidying, expect to see some of my online blogging move to Frog.

Interesting to go back to Stevey’s Blog Rant from 2006.

Quite perceptive … the ascendent Lisps today, at least the ones that have caught my attention, are Clojure and Racket. Neither of which really existed at the time he was writing (although Racket’s ancestor, Dr. Scheme did). Both of which do, indeed, have offered a layer of practicality and accessibility that perhaps other Lisps of the time lacked.
