Postmodernism and Programming

This talk, given by Larry Wall, creator of Perl, is rambling and maybe a little out of date, but I stumbled upon it via a link on a Slashdot thread and was surprised I hadn't read this earlier. (Especially since he mentions Feed magazine in the first paragraph -- the raft on which I rode the 90s internet wave.) The fact, if you didn't know already, that he is an evangelical Christian (of the harmless sort) and a linguist makes him one of the more unusual public figures in programming.
