Language observations weblog
Thought I'd pass along the link to this weblog set up by Todd Blanchard. Mostly just a place for Todd to give his personal perspective on language design issues (rants?). Given his background in Smalltalk and Objective-C, it is definitely slanted to the dynamic typing programming languages (as opposed to the static ones).

As for myself, I'm buried in two jobs that involve T-SQL at the moment, and I can't sympathize with either side of that debate - with my current constraint of mostly SQL, either language paradigm would be a step up. :-)

I gather that the writings are not geared towards building a community of any sorts, so it's not similar in purpose to LtU. The weblog format seems about as good as a diary type format as it is at threaded forum discussions.
