Nice interview with Guy Steele 

Found this today. Nice interview with Guy Steele, mentioning his work on designing a new language for scientists.

I have to say that Steele has really done some amazing work over the years. While a single accomplishment like designing Scheme or wrestling Common Lisp to the ground would be amazing, he just keeps going. Sort of the language designer equivalent of the Energizer bunny.


Is co-author of the Java Language Spec. really his claim to fame?
