>      Yoni will first introduce symbolic, conditional and meta
>      expressions and their recursive definitions with the
>      λ-notation. Then he will briefly describe how such
>      expressions might be represented by a computer. He will
>      introduce the Lisp REPL and use it to explore a number of
>      basic Lisp paradigms such as closures, functional programming,
>      and Lisp macros. Finally, we shall look at the past and
>      present of Lisp as a language.         
> 
>      Yoni Rabkin studied computer science and math and after a
>      stint testing medical lasers has been a working programmer
>      for the past 6 years. Yoni has been volunteering at the Free
>      Software Foundation's GPL Compliance Lab since 2006.
