More general #clojure question: what is a good place to drop in and ask about idiomatic ways to solve common problems?
#clojure question: I have a .yaml file where I want to put placeholders and replace them with some concrete strings from a map. What's the recommended way to do it?

Here's a fun TIL: Because the ratio of terms in the Fibonacci sequence approaches phi, and because phi is close to the ratio of km to miles, you can approximate conversion between distances with adjacent Fibonacci numbers.
So 2 km ≈ 1 mile, 3 km ≈ 2 miles, 5 km ≈ 3 miles, 8 km ≈ 5 miles, 13 km ≈ 8 miles, etc, etc
I should really overcome the dread of being wrong and submit a talk to #pycascades
