maybe i'm a little stringent but if if isn't peer reviewed and in a journal, i don't consider it a paper.

Maybe it didn't appear in journals, but certainly has had much more impact than 99% of the papers in the last decade.

An amazing contrast: "Publish or perish" driven research vs "I don't want the fame, I just want to build something useful and practical".

I guess that, given its impact, it's more peer-reviewed than most published papers.

I think that this is an important point: that just because something isn't in a journal, doesn't mean that it hasn't been peer reviewed!
