After my recent postings about the CADR LISP machine and embedded LISP machines I got a fair number of comments from people saying something to the effect of, "Hey, I have been thinking the same thing!" Given the number of people that seem to be interested in such a topic, I decided that a discussion group was probably warranted. I just created a Yahoo! group on LISP machines. You can find it at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/lispmachines/. There are other projects that people have also started previously doing similar sorts of things (software simulators, primarily). I'll post references to those as I find more of them.
For what it's worth, there are already two existing lists on this topic:
http://lists.tunes.org/archives/lispm/ for firstname.lastname@example.org
http://www.ai.sri.com/mailing-lists/slug/ for email@example.com
You might want to look into the Ares project at the MIT AI lab and Andrew Huwang's thesis work. He was doing something much like this, although his focus was massively parallel architectures using a lispm like (I forget if it was stack based or not, but I know that it was using standard 36bit words). When I left it all seemed to be fairly advanced, but I haven't really looked at it since. He's at Xilinx now, iirc.
