Must-read papers for programmers

Michael Feathers came up with an excellent list of must-read papers from programmers (he is bored, his head it too heavy).

You can find it here:

There were some papers I didn't know, but also some papers I'd think would be missing, such as Dijkstas "The Humble Programmer". Still, a nice list. (not he can go back to watching Idols)
