Alan Kay interviews and more ideas


Recently, Alan Kay (you know, my 1st reference for maaany things) appeared in Code Mesh and Joe Armstrong (of Erlang fame) interviewed him. As always, lots of insights and some old concepts mixed with new ones.

Also here is a 2h+ long interview from 1990 that I think appeared recently on the internet.

More 'Kayisms', some thoughts, reflections and examples on how to store data that can last (as in be read) practically forever.

And here there are a couple of other links I hadn't seen about him, the story of personal computing, and progress/critical thinking  in general.
