Steps Toward The Reinvention of Programming

[ #32429 ]

Steps Toward The Reinvention of Programming is Alan Kay's NSF proposal for a system that would, if they can bring it off, could be a revolution in computing. Especially interesting to me is taking introspection to the point where the whole system is comprehensible to (at least) the average programmer it reminds me of the Lion's annotated Unix source code books, somehow. (I really haven't done the paper justice; please look it over yourself.)

Also worth a look is CIO's interview with Alan Kay where he talks about some of the same ideas found in the Reinvention of Programming paper.
