> Subject: Building a database of Lisp users
> The Lisp community is growing rapidly. In order to support this growth,
> the ALU (Association of Lisp Users) is building a database of all
> and organizations with an interest in Lisp. This information will be
> published on the ALU site (http://www.alu.org). You can find a list of
> the questionnaires we've received so far at
> We hope that this information will help Lispers to get an answer to
> questions like:
> - Are there other Lispers in the region I live in?
> If so, how many? How can I contact them?
> - Which other Lispers are working in my fields of interest?
> - Where can I find programmers who can write or maintain Lisp
> software for my organization?
> - Where can I find organizations that are hiring Lisp programmers?
> - What Lisp activities are taking place in my neighbourhood?
> Hopefully, we can also use this information to dispel the myth that
> nobody is using Lisp.
> If you have any interest in Lisp, we would appreciate it very much if
> you could fill in the following questionnaire. The information you
> supply will be processed by humans before we pass it on to computers,
> so please feel free to ignore any questions that you don't want to
> answer or to answer questions that we didn't think of asking.
> Thank you very much.

signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not
fed, those who are cold and are not clothed."
