Oh yes, Steve Bourne's MACRO ALGOL.
I remember being recruited for a company where they were pushing that we would get to work with Steve Bourne! Now, I have never met him and don't know anything about him except for how much I hated that MACRO ALGOL when I was trying to fix something in v7 shell. I don't think I explained to the recruiter why the prospect of working with him had me nonplussed. But I'm sure he heard about it eventually.
