I'd like to announce AngloHaskell 2007, or at least the start of the 
process of organising it!

Last year there was a get-together organised around the interviews for the 
job of GHC maintainer. There were talks, with a largely pragmatic 
flavour, and there was plenty of socialising. It was fun, and doing it 
again seems a good idea.

In the vein of last year's process, organising an event this year shall 
take place on the Haskell Wiki page at:


and on IRC, in #anglohaskell on irc.freenode.net

So far this is almost all the detail available, as neither date nor venue 
have been set - a summer date seems good though, and by the time we're 
organised I imagine late July or August looks most likely. Simon 
Peyton-Jones has offered to ask Microsoft Research for space to give talks 
in. This worked well last year, but if anyone else wants to offer a venue 
that's fine!

The task of the academic is not to scale great
intellectual mountains, but to flatten them.
