It's said that learning lisp makes you a better programmer, even if you don't use it day to day. This post will likely span over several years as I continue to passively learn list. I don't plan to write much about lisp itself, but rather give a chronological history of the resources I found useful.

I don't have a whole history of the reasons why I want to learn lisp. Most of all it's from comments I see on HackerNews. Here are some other things that persuaded me that lisp is worth learning.
- [Blog] Beating the Averages by Paul Graham
- [Video] Lisp, The Quantum Programmer's Choice - Computerphile

- I started reading the book The Little Schemer, which is highly recommended across the internet. I decided that it would be more helpful to learn a bit of lisp syntax first (
- I watched this Scheme Lisp: Feel the Cool by Andy Balaam on YouTube. I've never learned programming from videos, but actually I found this really helpful.
