"Programming Windows Phone 7 Series" by Charles Petzold
A new programming language based on Lisp, running on top of Java JVM or .NET CLR.

"Clojure is a dynamic programming language that targets the Java Virtual Machine (and the CLR ). It is designed to be a general-purpose language, combining the approachability and interactive development of a scripting language with an efficient and robust infrastructure for multithreaded programming. Clojure is a compiled language - it compiles directly to JVM bytecode, yet remains completely dynamic. Every feature supported by Clojure is supported at runtime. Clojure provides easy access to the Java frameworks, with optional type hints and type inference, to ensure that calls to Java can avoid reflection.

Clojure is a dialect of Lisp, and shares with Lisp the code-as-data philosophy and a powerful macro system. Clojure is predominantly a functional programming language, and features a rich set of immutable, persistent data structures. When mutable state is needed, Clojure offers a software transactional memory system and reactive Agent system that ensure clean, correct, multithreaded designs."

"Well, make me smart here. What's Web 3.0?

Schmidt: It's basically just the Web
and the social apps
and building applications
on top of everything
that you just talked about."

Some people expected Web 3.0
to be w3c Semantic Web.
Apparently, 12 years after
semantic web is announced
the name web 3.0 will be defined
by most promising web evolution,
not by a prediction or by a comity..,
