I recently found myself in Durham at the same time as Rich Hickey. Obviously, Rich has quite a few major accomplishments under his belt, including creating Clojure, ClojureScript, and Datomic, three technologies I personally use and love. Understandably, I think, I've wanted to have him on the podcast since the show started.
As it happens, Rich is also a super nice guy, and was therefore kind enough to sit down for a few minutes and indulge me. I really enjoyed our conversation about Clojure, music, Datomic, the fascinating question of whether our ears have a "focus" mechanism, how to design things by taking them apart, and a variety of other topics. I'm sure you'll enjoy listening to this episode as much as I enjoyed recording it!
