End User Programing

Question: Can you talk about end user programing that's macro based?
Answer: ...It turns out that in our environment all the commands are verbs and nouns and they are explicit, you learn them, so you can say "I already know the lines in a script I can write to say 'Delete Word' and I know how to address things very flexibly so I can write an address in there...
Notes: None.

.au 11.127 khz 16 bits mono with µLaw 2;1 compression.

Originally recorded on an Apple Macintosh PowerBook using a SONY ECM-T145 condenser microphone and Adobe Premiere audio/video editing software. The original recording was saved as a QuickTime file at 22 mhz, 16 bits with no compression.
Due to Doug's characteristically low voice it was then imported into a Premiere project where the volume was raised in the project timeline three times (no filter) and saved as a QuickTime movie.
The document was then finally imported into Apple's QuickTime Player and exported as .au at 11.127 khz, 16 bits mono with µLaw 2;1 compression resulting in the version playing here.

Recorded: Session 2. 7/25/2000. Interviewed at Dr. Engelbarts residence in Atherton, California, late in the evening by Frode Hegland @.
