Found via the discussion at https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=12112800. I'm still trying to make sense of it.

They key quote that got me interested in it: "..we believe it is important to clear up the longstanding confusion about the source of LISP's metalinguistic power -- contrary to folklore it is unrelated to the fact that LISP programs are represented by lists."
