Rob Pike: Geek of the Week
"The syntax is clearly influenced by the C family, but there's also a lot of the Pascal family especially from the Modula and Oberon branches, in the type syntax and package systems. Its concurrency is rooted in CSP, but evolved through a series of languages done at Bell Labs in the 1980s and 1990s, such as Newsqueak, Alef, and Limbo..............."The most surprising one to me was a program Russ Cox wrote that, because of this orthogonality of features I mentioned, was able to attach a method to a function in the implementation of a web server. That's a fun example to present - it's a bit of a mindblower. It's the HandlerFunc adapter described in Effective Go"........."Go's usage is growing both inside Google and in the outside world. I'm doing what I can to support that, while continuing to develop the language, libraries and environment. I hope some big things will be happening soon."
