Stephano points to an interesting new programming language called Subtext, with a cool 17-minute demo, and quote my favorite professor from my undergrad years in the process.  "Alan Perlis once said "a programming language that doesn't change the way you think about programming is not worth knowing"... Well, Subtext is not a programming language that you can use today to write your next blog with, but it made me think.''  Two key ideas:  building a data structure rather than writing text, and thereby abandoning variables; and always executing code as it's written, like a spreadsheet, shortening the code/test/recode loop.  11:59:23 PM  permalink
