On IRC, my nickname is arbscht.
Currently, I curate the lispgames Twitter account.
I have been using lisp languages since 2005.
I use ECL, CLISP, CCL or SBCL for CL; Clojure on OpenJDK; and Emacs 23. All on Debian GNU/Linux.
I once wrote a very small implementation of Snake in Clojure. Amusingly, the idea of exemplifying Clojure with Snake caught on in the community, leading to the inclusion of a better Snake implementation in Stu Halloway's book.
Sometimes, I play modified Quake III-based games. For a while, I helped run a hosting service for such games in Australia/NZ.
Lately I have been watching Starcraft II games, and find the concept of e-sports intriguing.
I believe there are huge untapped opportunities for free-software gaming, and that the productivity capacity of lisps can help realize that.
