Since Mark Chu-Carroll will be talking about Go at the July meeting, I figured this Interview with Rob Pike was worth passing along.

"Rob Pike has certainly been places and done things. In the early 1980s, he worked with Brian Kernighan and Ken Thompson at Bell Labs, where he co-wrote "The Unix Programming Environment" with Kernighan and co-developed the UTF-8 character encoding standard with Thompson. Pike is now a principal engineer at Google, where he's co-developed Go, a new programming language. Pike, who will discuss Go at next month's OSCON convention, talks about Go's development and the current state of programming languages in the following interview."
