Fantastic - the other vid http://www.computinghistory.org.uk/det/5299/Steve-Furber/ has some overlap of material, but also some fascinating BBC Micro snippets,

Awesome, I enjoyed that. Though the interviewer was a bit annoying with his "uhu...uhu...ABSOLUTELY!....uhu...UHU!...uhu!".

It is well worth watching the Acorn World interview too, where he describes how the entire operation of the initial ARM was simulated on a BBC Micro, and how all the design documents were stored on one floppy disk which he later kept in a box in his garage!

Amazing what 2 people can do with no resources and no money.

Sorry the second link should be http://www.computinghistory.org.uk/det/5633/Steve%20Furber%20Talk%20-%20Acorn%20World%20-%2013-09-2009

Even if you have no interest in the history, there is a valuable lesson for all developers at about 22:00 in the above video...
