LISP for Web-development? Now, that's a thought! LISP Deserves a Fresh Look: LISP has potential to handle Web-facing applications using fewer lines of code, and with acceptable memory use and execution speed. The fastest versions of C and C++ programs were faster than most LISP implementations, but the median performance of the LISP implementations was actually twice as good as the median performance of the C and C++ code performing typical tasks (more at www.flownet.com/gat/papers/lisp-java.pdf).
