Manuel Simoni's blog about programming (languages).
Is this in response to any particular language?I do know the feeling, though. I've come across programming language experts, and even a few language designers, that were unfamiliar with the hyperspec, metacircular interpreters, and the cycle of eval / apply. It's like computing is divided into the camps of the Wizard book and the Dragon book.Actually, that makes a lot of sense now.
Okay, I'm going to expose ignorance on those acronyms and Google isn't helping. What's the reference, links please. :)

CLHS and RnRS — giants to stand on.
