The ARPANET IMP Program: Retrospective and Resurrection (PDF).
“In 2013 a faded 1973 line printer listing of the IMP program from
1973 was run through a special OCR program optimized to process such
historical artifacts; an assembler was recreated to assemble the IMP
code (looking like the modified PDP-1 Midas assembler used in 1973);
and a software emulator of the original IMP hardware platform was
ChaCha20 and Poly1305 in OpenSSH, and there was much rejoicing.

Why Marpa works: table parsing,
“I was surprised to find that the academic literature contained a
major improvement to table parsing by Joop Leo, an improvement which
nobody had ever made a serious attempt to implement. Marpa is the
first implementation of Joop Leo’s 1991 improvement to table parsing
which, as far as theory goes, makes Marpa as fast any parser in
practical use today.”
