    Nice presentation, I always enjoy Bob Martin. Did Uncle Bob made the Clojure code he presented available online? I would like to check it out.

    Its entirely obnoxious and self absorbed that he thinks he can say clojure is a replacement for c. Thats like saying eggs are a replacement for oranges in real life.

    The code looks similar to the one in github.com/unclebob/clojureOrbit

    To be fair, he didn't say it WAS a replacement for C. He said that the intent of his talk was an attempt to make the case that Closure is a new kind of C.
    That's not quite as obnoxious. There's nothing wrong or obnoxious with making an argument for some point of view. The point is to stimulate discussion.
    In fact he did make quite a number of good points to illustrate that Closure and C are alike in some ways and not "eggs and oranges".

    I don't really follow the "self-absorbed" bit.

    I don't think it's obnoxious at all. Maybe the point was that Clojure may become as successful, widespread, pervasive and ubiquitous as C. Maybe it will one day have the same impact as a general purpose LISP in the same way that C has for imperative languages.
