the art of computer designing

The other week I went to a Boston Tech Poetics meetup (recommended if you're a coder or maker in the area!) One of the speakers was Zach Lieberman, who quoted this:
The work of past ages accumulates, and is remade again.
--Osamu Sato, "The Art of Computer Designing"
I don't think the book resonated as deeply for me as for him, but I could see it hitting the sweet spot if some creative person encountered it at the right age or in the right frame of mind. Used copies on amazon are like $600, but archive.org has a good copy online
