Designing (your)Self

I just saw a very interesting lecture by Davig Unger. Its main focus is the programming language Self, which is a prototyped-based object-oriented language. He also talks about other things: getting the right people to work with you, some of his guiding principles, and even a few comments on getting to know yourself.

David Ungar received the Dahl-Nygaard Senior Prize in 2009 for his work in the field of object-orientation, most notably for Self. He currenlty works at IBM Research.
