Name: Hal Abelson
The voter indicated that he would like to submit the first chapter of Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs as his statement. The Steering Committee agrees that this does fulfill the requirement, given that the voter did write it, and it is more that 75 words long. Unfortunately we don’t have the space to reproduce it here, but it can be found online at http://mitpress.mit.edu/sicp/.
(For non-Schemers: To register as a voter, people must submit a statement indicating their interest in Scheme and the standardization process. Most people’s submissions look like, “I have been using Scheme for X years blah blah blah…” I guess if you wrote SICP, you can afford to do it differently. :-)
