John Connors
John Connors is a Person who used to be a professional games programmer but now is a postgraduate student because he got into this whole Common Lisp thing, among other reasons.

He first encountered it when he tried Acornsoft Lisp on a BBC Model B computer. It was a bit of a restricted implementation on a 8-bit micro with 32k, but he is grateful he met Lisp before C or BCPL.
