“Lately, the Falcon Programming Language has attracted growing interest and excited a deal of curiosity. In this article I’ll document some unique features of Falcon that allow users to build easily what I define as a ‘second order virtual machine’.”
A Second Order Virtual Machine with Falcon

I know I haven’t finished my Software Engineering degree, and computer science wasn’t stressed very much, but why would someone want to do this?
Additionally, what makes Falcon better for executing a list of functions than, say, Python?
Is there something new here – besides a burning desire to make up a clumsy buzz word?
If there is, the author failed to make it clear.
Better to spend equivalent time seeking inspiration from studying The Little Schemer than this muddled combination of functors and eval code.
