Remember watching this talk by Michael Bernstein many years ago, and some good things are worth revisiting, so I re-watched it today.
It’s backed by some reading material too.
These days I’m re-reading a lot of earlier papers, and this added some items to my list.
Licklider’s story has, in the years since this talk, become part of a book by Stripe Press, The Dream Machine
Minsky’s Society of the Mind has also, since this talk, become freely available online
However, “ Viewing Control Structures as Patterns of Passing Messages” was new to me, and is probably worth re-reading along with the classic actor paper.
