..I actually thought it was unique to read something how the
socio-political times might have influenced the design of a
*programming language*. I don't remember much at all from the
paper.. and have wanted to return to it.. but I really enjoyed the
Very Large Perspective and decidedly Non-Engineering perspective that
was taken. An attempt was made to put the *programming language* in
some historical light.. It kept my attention and I wanted to read more!
