"Anton Unplugged: Pontifications of the R6RS Process" :-)
Anton van Straaten, a member of the Scheme Editors Committee,
will host an unscripted free-form presentation/discussion on this
Here is Anton's Letter of Appointment:
Here is the most recent R6RS proposed standard:
Anton van Straaten is a consultant and software developer with a
strong interest in the design and development of programming
languages. He developed the award-winning software product
Class(y), an object-oriented language extension to the Clipper
database language. Class(y) extended the Clipper language by
adding the ability to create user-defined classes, creating a
true object-oriented language, with features such as multiple
inheritance and a Smalltalk-style meta-object protocol, based on
metaclasses. He also co-developed ExoSpace, a protected-mode
linker for Clipper which eliminated memory limitations. ExoSpace
was subsequently acquired by Computer Associates, a major
software vendor, and bundled with CA-Clipper.
Anton developed SchemeDS, an executable version of the formal
denotational semantics for the Scheme language, the only such
implementation publicly available and currently serves on the
Scheme Editors Committee, which is developing the Revised6 Report
on the Algorithmic Language Scheme (R6RS), a standard for the
Scheme programming language.
Anton hosts the programming languages community weblog Lambda the
Ultimate, founded by Ehud Lamm. He also hosts the Schematics
Scheme Cookbook, and the Community Scheme Wiki.
