Kay to receive the Turing Award

If anyone is due, it would be this person. Alan Kay to receive the ACM Turing Award for his innovation of Smalltalk.

The "Oy" comment in the article: Today, the language is credited as the model for C++ and Java.


Nevertheless I cannot wait for his Turing Award lecture. This would be worth attending in person. He tends not to hold back.

Another good introduction to Alan Kay.
