(via Keith Devens)

In the Spirit of C, by Greg Colvin.

A somewhat biased and over enthusiastic overview of the evolution of C and ilk.

  • ICLP'04 early registration is open. The accepted papers look intgeresting.
  • Jeremy Zawodny wonders whether the perl community is broken, and asks about the communities that formed around other scripting languages.
