Thank you jopython, fascinating article.
Cavemen in bearskins invaded the ivory towers of Artificial Intelligence. Nine months later, they left with a baby named newLISP. The women of the ivory towers wept and wailed. "Abomination!" they cried.

The article doesn’t mention that newLISP now does have native expansion macros: ... html#macro

... and should compare to those, not to fexprs with define-macro.

It also should mention that newLISP has mechanisms to avoid variable capture in fexprs: ... ml#scoping
and here: ... ther_LISPs
