a fistful of steele

Speaking of Guy Steele, he is also the recipient of the Dr. Dobbs Excellence in Programming award for 2005. As a result, this month's issue has a nice interview that covers his biography in computing, from when he wrote a full Lisp from scratch as a high school student, to his work at Tartan and Thinking Machines, Inc, to his current work at Sun. He's even on the cover! Unfortunately, the issue and article are available online only for a price.
