The "concurrency existed before erlang" slide is very odd.
It lists *late* languages, not mentioning
- Burroughs Algol (~1965)
- PL/I (~1965)
- Simula 67 (cooperative threads, basically)
- Algol 68
- Concurrent Pascal (1975)
all of which pre-dated most if not all of the languages on
that slide. Per Brinch Hansen has a list of key papers:
