Hi all,

about the future of Racket... A professional fortune teller here.

2040 -- I clearly see #lang racket widely used, although there are many more 
#langs out there (which translate to #lang racket under the hood).

The peak popularity of infix notational Racket has passed, now it's in the 
decline, but still widely used.

Arithmetic expressions can be included in s-expression code by simply wrapping 
them with $ signs, like in Latex.

PLT team gets a Turing award for their contributions to programming language 
research and CS education.

CS majors are required to take a macros exam and demonstrate solid knowledge of 
both reader macros and compile macros to get a degree.
