I love Scheme, and I write all my personal programming projects in Scheme. I'm sneaking Scheme in here and there in side projects at work, too.

Here's what I wrote to describe myself when I submitted my name to vote on R6RS:

I've been an avid fan of Scheme since 1984, when I first used it as part of the 6.001 Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs course at MIT. It has been my favorite programming language since then, and while I rarely use it at work, I use it for all my programming projects at home. While I was an undergraduate, a staff member, and a graduate student at MIT, I spent many years working on MIT Scheme, including its interpreter, compiler, runtime system, debugger, and editor, and I continue to make small contributions in my spare time. I've also spent a lot of time working on my own unfinished implementation of Scheme. I followed the R4RS and R5RS standardization processes closely, participated some in the IEEE Scheme standardization process, and have participated quite a bit by email in the R6RS process. I want to help make sure that R6RS maintains the right balance between the diamond-like jewel Scheme has always been and the practical everyday programming language that we have always wanted Scheme to be.

I'm looking forward to making the Scheme standard even better in this round.

On EditingTracPagesInEmacs, I describe how to use trac-wiki.el to view and edit pages on our Trac site directly from Emacs.
