Recently Larry Tesler died.
He’s famous for many things, including the invention of “Cut/Copy-Paste” metaphor and his quest against “modes” in software. (He even had a “NO MODES” license plate on his car)
One of his article resurfaced, and it contains nice bits about something we all know and love: going from VERB-SUBJECT concept to SUBJECT-VERB.
It’s quite interesting to see that in computing, everything old is new again.
