I've written a short talk on programming languages, intended not for a programming audience, but for an audience interested in languages, who'll be thinking about "does a programming language have verbs/nouns?" and so on.
I don't want to post my first draft publicly, but would anyone like to read it and tell me if I've made a complete fool of myself?
Your motivation, if you're interested, is that I've turned it into a plug for Perl by the end, and I don't want to let down the Perl community by association!
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to help.
Nobody says perl looks like line-noise any more
kids today don't know what line-noise IS ...
