Via Scott Rosenberg (whose book Dreaming in Code I think we mentioned here before), I learn than Susan Lammers is making the interviews from her 1984 book Programmers At Work available on the Web.
Here is how she describes the goals of her new site:
Many people have urged me over the years to do a second Programmers At Work (PAW) with a new generation of programmers and Iâ€™ve sketched out the project, made lists of new folks to feature, done inquiries, thought about going back to talk to the guys in the original edition, and other variations . Now with this web site, I will make the original interviews available online, and perhaps it will become the seed for a more â€œthoroughly modernâ€ approach to the PAW series. What Iâ€™m hoping we can kindle on this site is an ongoing exploration and dynamic conversation with the "connected" community of programmers on the web about the creative process in programming.
Who better than the LtU community to contribute to such a conversation?
The first PAW interview posted to the site is the interview with Charles Simonyi, a man whose views of the future of programming, and programming languages, are mentioned here often (though not always with great enthusiasm).
