comment Is Object Oriented Programming a solution to complexity?
@MichaelBorgwardt, I know, that's why I remarked that lisp really is used by people, so it's not just some ivory tower stuff.

comment Is Object Oriented Programming a solution to complexity?
@MichaelBorgwardt, mainstream adoption corrupts a useful idea because many people in the main stream don't understand what the idea is all about, so when you try to search for what OOP is, you see various misconceptions by various people. LISP still is used, but only by a minority, so it's less likely that the original ideas suffered from the corruption caused by pointy haired bosses not having a clue what it's all about.

comment Why can't there be an “universal” programming language that serves all purposes?
Machine language is not universal; not even close. Each machine has its own language.
