Brain melt

I'm trying to implement a webapp api in Clojure inspired by the elegant model of Seaside. There are two important shifts in this port, firstly migrating from SmallTalk's object model to lisp's macro based approach, and secondly taking advantage of Clojure's concurrency primitives.

My brain is gently melting out my ears as a result. On the upside, when I get this to work, I get a surprisingly easy way to implement co-operative web applications. A wonderful environment for trying out new approaches to user interface design. It's just the game of getting from vision to implementation.

Sometime next year, at this rate. =)
