Objects Are Not Abstract Data Types – Digital Digressions by Stuart Sierra

I was lucky enough to see a talk by Barbara Liskov, the grande dame of computer science. The talk was titled “The Power of Abstraction,” and it covered Liskov’s work on programming languages in the 1970s and 1980s, primarily a language called CLU.

Update 1/14/2010: Video of the same talk is available here: OOPSLA Keynote: The Power Of Abstraction
