Handy #Clojure snippet for apply-ing Java methods (here, via @citizen428) -- A rather old snippet from Rich Hickey himself that makes it easy to apply Java methods to objects.
Whew, new blog post about my library: Natural Language Processing in #Clojure with clojure-opennlp (here, via @thnetos) -- Grab a text, break it into sentences, parse the words and tag them. It's that easy! Work in progress...
@hugoduncan 's criterium is a pretty sweet start toward a fantastic benchmarking suite for clojure (here, via @bradfordcross) -- "Criterium measures the computation time of an expression. It is designed to address some of the pitfalls of benchmarking, and benchmarking on the JVM in particular."
