Javascript – not actually rubbish?

Javascript – LISP with a different syntax?

I’ve been hearing murmurings along these lines from People Who Know, particularly PhD Student People I Know Who Know, one of whom was apparently writing a Tetris clone in Javascript recently. So yeah, this could be good.

    Yeah, I had occasion to write some DHTML recently, and bugger me if I didn’t end up with something using closures and higher-order functions. Quite a surprise.

    I was rather sceptical when I originally read this, but after a couple of days of javascript coding I have to say it really is pretty cool. :)
