An Unfinished Idea: A Conference On Emerging Programming Languages

An event to bring together bright folks working on unfinished or recently finished programming languages. Even relatively young languages like Scala would not qualify; this event is all about the sharpest part of the cutting edge.

It makes sense to schedule the event around JavaOne or another large conference that attracts language-minded developers. The event would likely be held in San Francisco, and would be a single day (including a planned outing in the evening). Target date is mid-2010.
