Quotes of the Week
* shachaf: Haskell's type system is the perfect mix of useless and
stupid.
* roconnor: gez, you write one paper explaining how a lens is really
a higher order monoidal natural transformation, and suddenly
everyone thinks you are an expert on lenses.
* roconnor: a lens is a monoidal natural transformation between
higher-order coalgebra functors, what's the problem?
* Enigmagic: we use the 'rsync' deploy model
* cmccann: someone should implement a dependently-typed unsafeCoerce
in Agda, you'd have to provide a proof that the coercion is invalid
* ghc: Couldn't match type `No' with `Yes'
