    http://www.windley.com/archives/2006/02/alan_kay_is_com.shtml
    "Alan uses John McCarthy and Lisp as an example of real science in computer science. He showed us that you can build a system that's also it's own metasystem. Lisp is like Maxwell's equations."

    "Squeak is written in 230,000 lines of SmallTalk. They think it could be 20,000. There are 59,000 methods in 3.5Mb of object code, for about 59 bytes per method. There are about 5 million objects and it was implemented by ten people. The system is self-bootstrapping, so it's all in there. Learning how to do this ought to be part of computer science but regrettably it's not."
    "To do creative work in computing, you must get past what you think is normal. Write down the 20 things you think are true of computing and try to demolish them."
    "The good guys (late binders) lost in the late 70's. The early binders won."
