Guy Steele on Programming Languages

Things always seem to slow down as we approach this time of year, so I'll post a OOPSLA 2007 video interview of Guy Steele on Programming Languages that I stumbled upon. Covers a range of topics that are of interest to the current and future state of PLs. Nothing too technically deep, but tidbits of interest scattered throughout the interview (especially on DSLs).

(see also prior LtU discussion Guy Steele on Language Design).

(Maybe others have seen this before but I really like the interface that is provided for the video. The list of questions are clickable links which move you to that place in the interview where the question was asked. I hope this catches on for all technical video interviews.)
