Related to some discussion at the JVMLS about quasi-constants
(templates, constants with holes), here is the early history of
quasi-quoting in computing, as reported by someone who was there.

Alan Bawden, Quasiquotation in Lisp (1999)

Also regarding the history of quasiquotes, I found this little gem,
showing one of our own community, in his tender years, innocently
confounding the Boffins of Quotation.

Boolos & Jeffrey, Logic, Logic, Logic (1999), p. 393
