Three pointers on programming languages, designers, prototypes

Related to the great work that Robert Paauwe is doing, here are three tasty links from Aadjan:

 

 

  Super cool video from Bret Victor talking about his approach to programming and to life: http://www.i-programmer.info/news/112-theory/3900-a-better-way-to-program.html (and direct Vimeo link). I would say that he is slightly cheating, because he is demonstrating code that runs, draws a picture and then terminates. It would be harder to do this sort of tricks with code that has complex internal dependencies, carries a lot of state around, has a long runtime and does not produce understandable visual output. Also, he is a boring speaker, but the ideas are great. 
 
Interview with Jonathan Ive about the value of prototyping ideas.
 
Why only designers can create new programming languages: http://tagide.com/blog/2012/03/research-in-programming-languages/ – blog post from someone who knows about programming language. Interesting? Irritating?

If you can imagine that, I had to format this with an HTML table. Such are the joys.
