Discussion of concatenative languages on various blogs

A couple of bloggers are exploring concatenative languages and have posted interesting articles, with more depth than the usual "dup * squares an integer" cursory glance:

Aaron Schaefer (elasticdog in #concatenative; he's been contributing to our math library and writing project euler solutions) has written a couple of introductory Factor articles too, and is working on a third installment.

Things have also been picking up in the #concatenative IRC channel on FreeNode, and usually there are 60-70 people online. Lots of interesting discussion going on there.

Finally, I'll take this opportunity to plug the concatenative languages wiki, and remind everyone that it running on a web framework and server written in a concatenative language. Other than an issue with our O/R mapper that we fixed recently, it has been running without any problems. It has been serving between 10,000 and 24,000 hits a day; I'd like to see it hit 10 or 20 times that number and see how it holds up.
