UNIX from 1982 (Video): more packages than Game of Thrones

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
"UNIX is very simple, it just needs a genius to understand its simplicity."

I was trying to find this quote about with google. The one site that referred to it also linked to this bell labs UNIX video from 1982 and since it's 27 1/2 minutes of pure awesome I thought I would link it. Not actually sure that the video actually has the line though.

Also, apparently at one time, /usr was in fact short for user (instead of home). Oh and sorry about the title.

The piece about how software developers are still constantly given poor specifications and told to "turn a radio into a TV" is just as applicable today

This is so true

Some of the people in the video seem so into their jobs, the guy talking about C is my favourite, he just can't sit still while talking about it thumb.gif

Hardly surprising really. They were creating something pioneering and new at that time, of course they'd be excited to show it off. Any developer would be the same (even now, I get excited to show off a finished product and the stuff I do hardly compares to the invention of C).

I like the excitement but also the humility. Doug McIlroy is so casual talking about piping, a monumental step in ALL computing. Maybe he was so cavalier because he had so much "still in the oven", but you can tell he already appreciated the Community and that one thing leads to another when people get out of their own way (ego) and just create for the love of it and being a part of something bigger.
