I realize pg has pretty much abandoned this forum, but I admit I was still surprised to see him recommending Clojure instead of Arc in the above tweet.

I'm pretty sure he's always said Arc is a work in progress, and is not ready for full-fledged production use. I don't think he's ever recommended it to others.

I'm sure part of that is that he doesn't right now want to deal with people making requests for it. And having a userbase would mean that.

From what I remember of The Hundred-Year Language, that's pretty much what he said.

Off topic: I don't know how to encourage Arc. I don't even manage to follow the forum. What I know though is that I want Arc to exist. It's a huge mental relief to know it exists.

Perhaps it is because of the larger community backing Clojure?

Make me think that an implementation of Arc targeting Clojure or the jvm could be a good idea.
