Dave’s on a roll. A few days ago we heard he’s on the ECMAScript committee. Now he follows up with a great post on Nancy typing(read the post to get the joke), and a PLT Scheme language that implements Javascript (available from PLaneT, of course).

More on the next Javascript

Brendan Eich writes on Python and JavaScript. The first part discusses his plans to add generators and array comprehensions to Javascript. But that’s not the real news! It comes later:

I’m happy to announce that we are now working with Dave Herman, a fourth year graduate student at Northeastern, of PLT and lambda-the-ultimate renown, whom I invited as an expert to help ECMA TG1 develop sound specifications for critical parts of ECMAScript Edition 4 (ES4), also known as JavaScript 2 (JS2).

Go Dave!
