This is a fantastic read. A look behind the scenes of the creation of the Common Lisp standard and the HyperSpec: The aims, forces, struggles, personalities and random events that caused it to be what it is.
It's a written version of a talk given by Kent Pitman, the main editor of the standard, at Lisp50@OOPSLA at OOPSA 2008:

ok but 'Autobiography of son of Peter Tomkins, WW2 spy and psychic guru' is a pretty good lede so I'm borrowing this one too
thanks to @clacke's mentioning of Huey, Dewey, and Louie in reference to my post about Rock, Paper, Scissors; I started thinking about the alignment of the nephews to the TMNTs. What other color coded mutant animal gangs are there?

✔ idea to not let this day pass unnoticed - by @titi
self acceptance not in a woo fluffy kind of way but in a "it's ok to do things half assed, just for fun, or at your own pace and fuck everyone who says otherwise" kind of way has made my life so much easier.
I am still working on it, but when I realized I was shaming myself for not having as much energy as my peers and just said, fuck it im a low energy person, I'mma live in the slow lane and like it, my life got so much easier just cuz I was not anxious about shit I can't change. I still try to eat and sleep appropriately so I can have ~some functioning but besides that, screw it. better to get things done half assedly than to never do them and panic about it
