Interesting timing for me :) I was going to post about category theory
as well, but my motivation is the opposite - I'd like to ask about it.
(I've changed the subject since this ought to be a separate thread.)

My final year undergraduate project involves defining the semantics of
a memoization function in Haskell using category theory, so of course
I've been trying to figure out exactly what the Haskell category
consists of.

I've put a summary of my thoughts at http://sucs.org/~pwb/cats.txt .
I'd appreciate comments, criticism, etc.
