It was neat to see “langpop.com” on the screeen during Tim Bray’s talk at OSCON (contains a link to the video):
The talk itself was an overview of the state of programming languages. However, 15 minutes is not enough time to do the topic justice, but if you’re not a language geek, it’s not a bad survey, and I really like his style: he’s fair when he points out the good and the bad. Like him, I am sick of PHP and do not care to use it any time in the near future, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a lot of good things to be said about it. In any case, I’m honored that Tim used langpop.com as a source for his talk.
