A lingua franca for the Internet
[1/5] from: sanghabum:aol at: 21-Sep-2001 17:04
Anyone else here read "The Economist"? There's an interesting article in this week's edition (22-28Sep01, Technology Quarterly page 16) on the future of programming languages: "A lingua franca for the Internet" Though it doesn't mention Rebol, it could almost be a manifesto for RT..... ....programming languages face a daunting challenge of helping to turn the Internet into a more intelligent place (due to the Internet) the elegance of computer languages--so dear to software gurus--has been sacrificed for easy of use....hence the rise of the quick-and-dirty scripting languages ....a programming language that incorporates concepts from artificial intelligence (like Lisp, Prolog) will no doubt appear when the time is right---and leave the likes of Java and C# by the wayside It is...within the realms of a small start-up's aspirations to develop the (replacement for the) Java language (Bits in braces my attempt to add context to short quotes). The full article should be online, but I think www.economist.com operate a pay-per-view for a few weeks after publication. Tell your CEO/CIO that you've found the language the Economist is prophecying! --Colin.
