Welcome to (the "I'm not dead yet") issue 287 of the HWN, an issue
covering crowd-sourced bits of information about Haskell from around
the web. This issue covers the very long span of time from November 10
to December 07, 2013.
Quotes of the Week
* chrisdone: monads are like a finger pointing away to the moon.
*smack* don't look at the finger or you will miss all that heavenly
glory
* quchen: A group with an associative law is called a group.
* chrisdone: i swim in a sea of parens and it warms me like rays of
the sun
* zomg: my client tells me weekly how I've saved his company. Then I
goto haskell and I'm like "I have no idea what I'm doing lul"
* pigworker: The usual style is to write as if everything is
inductive, and if it still works on infinite data, to pat ourselves
on the back for using Haskell rather than ML.
