Gregory Chaitin giving a lecture on the history of computer science through the lens of philosophy and mathematics. The link should skip the intro in this video. There are many more parts, so it’s not the shortest watch, but it’s very important material that is under-taught in the standard CS curriculum.

I enjoyed this lecture, but, I note that Chaitin avoids the word “computer” and uses the word “mathematics” instead, and, implies that Brooks was dead wrong - there IS a Silver Bullet, it is called “Mathematics”.
