Yes, that's the one.

I liked the introductory bit where he observed that the Structured
Programming debate is long since over and nobody seriously argues for
GOTO over the loop/function/etc syntax that pretty much all languages
now provide.  In a similar vein, people are now starting to expect that
languages provide built in support for parallelism etc.  And of course
newer ones do.
