General Development You've decided to expand your horizons. You've been programming exclusively in Java (or C++, or Perl, or Ruby) for a while now. You're happy and productive, but you have this nagging feeling that you're solving problems by rote rather than thinking as creatively as you once did. Learning a new language, especially one that forces you to re-examine some of your notions about software development, may be just the ticket.

RE[2]: smalltalk is incredible

"Lisp is the father of dynamic languages. Garbage collection and dynamic typing before Smalltalk ever existed."

Although this is true, I'd like to mention that Common Lisp borrowed its OO system from Smalltalk, and so have influenced each other.
