Growing a Language by Guy Steele

This is an amazing funny video about programming languages. This was a keynote by Guy Steele at The ACM SIGPLAN Conference OOPSLA’98. For those confused by the acronyms: ACM - Association for Computing Machinery (A professional organization for people in technology) SIGPLAN - Special Interest Group on Programming Language (An ACM group for programmers) OOPSLA - Object-Oriented Programming Systems, Languages & Applications (An annual conference that ACM SIGPLAN hosts)
