[Haskell-cafe] OT: any haskell-friendly / functional programming friendly comp sci programs? (for a 30s guy who did his undergrad in liberal arts)

Yeah, actually, I have to agree with that comment. Based on my own
experiences at least, students in an undergrad CS program are likely
to be looking for a cushy job where they'll get spoon-fed everything
(unless you're at an excellent university, which has its own
problems); students in a terminal master's CS program are going to be
much the same. For the networking opportunities, you might be much
better off hanging around on #haskell IRC for a while, and maybe even
going to some conferences, and eventually, if you're *looking* for
restless people who would want to get involved in a company that does
FP stuff, you may find they'll stick to you like glue. But someone has
to take the initiative.
