Talk notes: Programming and Scaling, Alan Kay 2011

Full talk: http://www.tele-task.de/archive/video/flash/14029/ - this version is where my timestamps apply.

Referenced several times on Hacker News but strangely, got little attention there. This talk is a favorite of mine as Kay challenges our preconceptions with a whirlwind tour of computing over half a century, with the overall message that we've barely begun to codify, teach, and learn best practices in creating software. My notes on his talk are below, often with a leading time-stamp should you want semi-random-access.
