Hi there- great podcast!
There's mention of a paper/library/algorithm about layouts, and a blog post about KVP usage in functional programming and what it can be applied to.

I've relistened a few times and just can't make out enough of the details to find these via Google. Any chance you can post what these were in the show page?

Awesome podcast. Please have Ken back again soon.

There was a reference to a classic CS book and I didn't catch the name.

I believe he was referencing the SICP book. Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs.
