Highly diggable computing trends post

The trends reported here are really, really important.

I recently outfitted my small format laptop, which isn't good for text heavy "lots and lots of writing"-software anyway, but much better for single-focus quality time with something beatiful and brief, with Haskell simply because the software neighbourhood I currently inhabit isn't beautiful or powerful enough. Brevity and reach of a language is extremely important.

My personal guide to these kinds of things has been Lambda the Ultimate for a while - as well as the clever perl hackers, Torkington mentions in the story above.

Extra special comp sci bonus: Abelson and Sussman video lectures of their own textbook, Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs.

Other instructors, same material from Archive.org and ArsDigita
