    I lol'd at the title ... but I can't wait to see the keynote.  Any talk that combines programming with quantum physics suits me just fine. Smiley  I'll be looking for the keynote. Ah look, here's an older version of the talk.  I've just watched it and it's mind blowing.  Big Smile  I'm thinking Roslyn + Rx virtual time + QM + GR + Rod Logic now.  Smiley

    Thank you @Richard.Hein for the link of the exciting Damian's older talk and thank you @Charles for this interview that reveals great insights into programming languages and physics!

    My time bookmark notes in "minute:second" format follows:

    0:24 the reason behind Damian's talk

    2:15 comments on the positronic variable and multiverses simulation in Perl

    3:15 bad habits & 2 diff types of programmers

    6:50 language specialization issue

    8:50 analogy with natural languages

    10:45 current state of PERL

    14:00 question on the push towards the "The general purpose language"

    16:20 programming languages design tradeoffs

    17:20 comments about Damian's keynote address and developers feedback to it

    18:50 programming == manipulating reality with language == kind of same what physicists do

    21:10 math as a language and analogy as a means for communicating it
