Ah Edsger Dijkstra, I have so many mixed feelings about this guy.
I'm Dutch myself (and a programmer for that matter) and really admire his theories and papers on programming. He left a great body of work and much of his ideas are timeless.
But in this interview he seemed to be a bitter, patronizing and disdainful old fart who can do nothing else than speak of the evils in commercial software development.
And goodness, how sour he looks in this video. I probably couldn't stand a day near him.
Lighten up old man, life's too ffing short to be grumpy. Smoke a joint, empty a bottle of whiskey, get laid and write another amazing algorithm or two.
But please stop whining about how everything used to be better and how you alone know it all.
No one is asking you to be his friend.
