I'm trying to bring it back into more widespread use. It's a beautiful language that deserves much more than a display case in a museum.

A list of implementations is given on the Rosetta Code page and a very good implementation is Algol 68 Genie, which runs on most everything. and has excellent documentation. A new sub-version release is likely to come along soon because I've been working with the author by submitting bug reports and discussing usability enhancements.

There is a LinkedIn SIG for Algol 68, which is where I was first stimulated to start using the language again. I've also started the very first (AFAIK) GitHub project at and have contributed a few examples to the Rosetta Code repository.

(The GitHub stuff is incomplete and is primarily a vehicle for me to regain fluency in the language.)
