Here are my 5 cents to this.
First about the spelling:
The release version is named "picoLisp". So i consider this the correct
spelling coming from Alex directly.
picolisp.org also uses various types of spellings.
2nd about the wiki people:
gtf out of our way.
Wikipedia was intended to be a open knowledge basis. You can look up
any big company name there and there are even tons of refernce links
into those companys.
The simple fact of the GPL License of picoLisp counts against the
commercial argument they made.
So its all there and you can learn it , understand it (if !) and use it
as the GPL says.
I my opinion, if wiki people keep acting like that , then picoLisp
doesnt need em anyway. There are tons of other ways to populate picoLisp.

Without some of your articles being mentioned on Lambda the Ultimate
back in 2007, I would probably not have heard of PicoLisp. I'm glad I
got to know it. In my opinion PicoLisp is a shining gem, and by
studying it one can learn a lot about different and clever ways to do
I now took a look at this: <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Picolisp>
Two things made me unsure if this was the same Lisp: It was
"originally developed on the Apple Macintosh". Wow! ;-) And then the
spelling: "PicoLisp", no space. It used to be "Pico Lisp", but you've
obviously changed it. (I just wish it wasn't "Picolisp", lowercase
"l".) Let's try to make that article stick! If we succeed, I'll make
another try at donating some money to Wikipedia.
Keep up the good work! ;-)

OK, my last try is the article in the German magazine c't. I've put a
into the English and German versions.
Besides this, I'm extremely frustrated. I think I wasted too much time
on communicating (instead of using) PicoLisp during the last 8 years.
From now on I'll concentrate on my own work. I won't write any
or propagate PicoLisp in any way. I'll answer questions in this mailing
