I guess those of us who have been with NASA... kind of understand the tremendous excitement and thrills and celebrations and national pride that went with the Apollo program is just something you're not going to create again, probably until we go to Mars.
LISP is now the second oldest programming language in present widespread use (after FORTRAN)... Its core occupies some kind of local optimum in the space of programming languages given that static friction discourages purely notational changes. Recursive use of conditional expressions, representation of symbolic information externally by lists and internally by list structure, and representation of program in the same way will probably have a very long life.john mccarthy
I believe OS/2 is destined to be the most important operating system, and possibly program, of all time.bill gates
Landmark Forum is a large group awareness training program in which up to 150 people take a seminar together aimed at helping them realize their true potential.
"Giving it away helps defuse complex intellectual property issues of ownership and control that can distract the universities from their missions to disseminate knowledge." - commmenting on MIT's Open Courseware programhal abelson
Our intellectual powers are rather geared to master static relations and that our powers to visualize processes evolving in time are relatively poorly developed. For that reason we should do (as wise programmers aware of our limitations) our utmost to shorten the conceptual gap between the static program and the dynamic process, to make the correspondence between the program (spread out in text space) and the process (spread out in time) as trivial as possible.edsger w. dijkstra
The X server has to be the biggest program I've ever seen that doesn't do anything for you.kenneth thompson
When somebody has learned how to program a computer … You're joining a group of people who can do incredible things. They can make the computer do anything they can imagine.tim berners-lee
Every Federal program which has contributed to the development of the West irrigation, power, reclamation bears his mark, and the great Federal highway program which binds this country, together, which permits this State to be competitive east and west, north and south, this in large measure is his creation. John F. Kennedycarl hayden
Conservatism, though a necessary element in any stable society, is not a social program; in its paternalistic, nationalistic and power adoring tendencies it is often closer to socialism than true liberalism; and with its traditionalistic, anti-intellectual, and often mystical propensities it will never, except in short periods of disillusionment, appeal to the young and all those others who believe that some changes are desirable if this world is to become a better place.friedrich hayek
The idea that I can be presented with a problem, set out to logically solve it with the tools at hand, and wind up with a program that could not be legally used because someone else followed the same logical steps some years ago and filed for a patent on it is horrifying.john d. carmack
For having a clear influence on methodologies for the creation of efficient and reliable software, and for helping to found the following important subfields of computer science: the theory of parsing, the semantics of programming languages, automatic program verification, automatic program synthesis, and analysis of algorithms.robert w floyd
I like the observation that Forth is an amplifier: a good programmer can write a great program; a bad programmer a terrible one. I feel no need to cater to bad programmers.
The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of "liberalism" they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.norman thomas
The newspaper fits the reader’s program while the listener must fit the broadcaster’s program.brewster, kingman, jr.
The new earth will complete God’s program. It will be what God intended for Adam and Eve in Eden.paul enns
I have met bright students in computer science who have never seen the source code of a large program. They may be good at writing small programs, but they can't begin to learn the different skills of writing large ones if they can't see how others have done it.richard m. stallman
And we can always supply them with a program that makes identical files into links to a single file.larry wall
Emacs is undoubtedly the most powerful programmer's editor in existence. It's a big, feature-laden program with a great deal of flexibility and customizability. … Emacs has an entire programming language inside it that can be used to write arbitrarily powerful editor functions.
An infinite number of monkeys typing into GNU Emacs would never make a good program.
EST. Erhard Seminars Training, a program involving spiritual practices derived from Zen Buddhism and Scientology.
Perl is the most popular web programming language. Over a million people program with Perl. That is approximately one Perl programmer for every resident of Hyderabad, Pakistan or Donetsk, Ukraine.
Artistic, with high sensitivity and imagination, Anna-Maria managed the difficult program.
The cleaner and nicer the program, the faster it's going to run. And if it doesn't, it'll be easy to make it fast.
The National Socialist regime in Germany is really based based on a program of ruthless force, which program has for its aim, first, the enslavement of the German population to a National Socialist social and political program, and then to use the force of these 67 million people for the extension of German political and economic sovereignty over South-Eastern Europe thus putting it into a position to dominate Europe completely.
