Continuations Reading Group
In keeping with the discussions here and in other weblogs on the use of continuations in web interactions, this announcement appeared recently on the LL1 email list.

Continuations have found many applications in the study of programming languages and (more recently) natural languages. In this reading group, we will read and discuss papers on continuations from many perspectives...

Yeah, somebody oughtta make, like, a weblog where they, like, link programming language research papers and stuff, and then people could, like, discuss them. But that'll prolly never happen. :)

I heard about a guy who collects PL theory texts [fixed], but that was probably just an unfounded rumor, like the one about the apocryphal (read scheme) affair.
