for hackers: computing history, software and language design

For you programers, i highly recommend this series of videos:

  • Crockford on JavaScript: A Public Lecture Series at Yahoo! (2010-01-25) By Douglas Crockford. @ Source yuiblog.com

Especially if you think you are a “Hacker”.

There's 8 videos, total time is several hours. The first 3 or so is actually about computing history, software design, language design. The last few are more technical about javascript and web tech.

This is very popular. I highly recommend it if you haven't seen already. At least the first 3 vids.
