Wow, I didn't know Eric Raymond was an asshole. I used to enjoy his books.
A helpful reminder that you should not hire Eric Raymond unless you want your organisation politically disrupted and its productivity destroyed.

We finally got around to publishing our old large-scale sorting experiment results. Better 4 years late than never!

What ideas are hot these days in Haskell?
I got the impression that it's, mainly, 1) free monads and interpreters for representing composable effects, and 2) lenses (and they are used in combination).
Prompted by seeing this awesome article http://degoes.net/articles/modern-fp/
What else?

I got 75% but I largely got lucky.

Open Source Release of TensorFlow

I'm very excited to announce the open source release of the TensorFlow machine learning library that I and many others at Google have been building.

This blog post gives an overview:
  http://googleresearch.blogspot.com/2015/11/tensorflow-googles-latest-machine_9.html

The web site has a number of tutorials and documentation about the system:
  http://tensorflow.org

The source is on GitHub:
  https://github.com/tensorflow/tensorflow

You might also be interested in the whitepaper we've prepared that describes TensorFlow in more detail:
  http://tensorflow.org/whitepaper2015.pdf

We'd love to hear what people think.

I asked a question on Quora; wondering if you know somebody who can answer.
https://www.quora.com/What-are-the-best-practices-for-writing-debuggable-numeric-code
For some reason I haven't seen this topic covered in any of the countless "how to write good code" pieces I saw on the internet or in books.

Wow, I have to catch up on a lot of great Haskell stuff. Looks like an amazing paper (as usual for anything Oleg touches, of course) using a few tricks that are a joy to learn about (free monads, extensible unions, effect handlers and modular interpreters, type-aligned queues, etc). I'll probably need to read it a few more times though.
