Matt Silverman has posted some interesting videos on Vimeo. In this one, two of the original CoSA After Effects team members, David Simons and Dan Wilk (nicknamed "Effect Boy"), take us on a trip down memory lane in a presentation from the first SFMOGRAPH user group meeting in March 2008. The current Adobe After Effects Engineering Manager Chris Prosser rounded out the night.

Note: the early AE ("Egg" at least) Filter menu is now Effects.
