Alan Kay’s talk in Potsdam is available online


in fact it has been for a few days already, but now it’s available in more formats than just Real player. The talk is called “Programming and Scaling”, not “Next steps for qualitatively improving programming” as it was announced and referred to on this blog, so don’t shy from watching it

So you can watch the video recordings here. Highly recommended.

Found via Sebastian Kübeck’s blog:

Among many other things, he shows how to shrink hundreds of thousands of lines of highly optimized code into a few lines of DSL (Domain Specific Language). He also mentions that the idea of DSLs was already used half a century old but it was called “Problem Oriented Language” in those days.
