Welcome to issue 257 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits
of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers the
week of January 27 to February 02, 2013.
Quotes of the Week
* shachaf: Everyone forgets about Agda Lovelace, the first
constructivist.
* applicative: I have my new ghc and am reinstalling my feeble world
* wuttf: My world is starting to feel like isToyLanguage x = x /=
Haskell
* PenguinOfDoom: Being enlightened gentlemen, we split all
programming languages into two groups, sucks and doesn't-suck and
put all of them into the first group.
* Taneb: lens has got to be the only library with more contributors
than people who know how it works
* shachaf: I like to put all my application's modules under GHC.*
That's because I use the GHC API, and I want them not to conflict.
