Roundtable discussion on APL, beards, proto-nerds & awesome 70s fashion

Catherine | Myspace Video

If you’re at all interested in the history of programming languages, give this video a watch. You’ve got the father of APL, Ken Iverson himself, being interviewed along with a panel of experts.

If APL isn’t your cup of tea, then you can also watch for the crazy 70s flute music, the hardware, the fashion, the crazy hair & beards and the set design. This video is such a wonderful collection of stuff.

There’s more backstory at Catherine’s Myspace page. (And so you know, she’s working on a whole documentary on the history of APL and array programming.)
