In one sense, 'the computer revolution is over' because the period of exponential growth behind the tech ended 10 years ago. In another sense, it hasn't begun: we have sheltered ourselves from the social and intellectual ramifications of computing. Documents are still simulations of paper, & capitalism still exists. So it's like that period where printing presses existed but everybody used a faux-calligraphic font.
Do you have lots of images to edit, but don't want to call ImageMagick?
$ gimp --batch -
This launches GIMP's builtin Lisp environment (TinyScheme), starts a REPL to read code from stdin, allowing powerful batch processing tasks.
Other language bindings are available, but Lisp is native. Documentation is available at Help -> Produce Browser in the main window.
Also useful if you just need Lisp, as most desktops already have one installed. Add --no-interface if you don't need GUI.
The recently released sources to RiscOS are fascinating; I could lose weeks in there; source to !Draw, BASIC, loads of other stuff, ah good memories.
