Bitbucket added Git support as of today! Along with free unlimited private repositories, this just may prompt the switch from Github.
Bitbucket is a free code DVCS hosting site for Git and Mercurial. Manage your development with a hosted wiki, issue tracker and source code.

Simon Peyton Jones has re-published "Beautiful Concurrency" in the School of Haskell. Now you can run and modify code directly in the article. Concurrent reindeer and elves vowing for Santa's attention using Software Transactional Memory. The beauty of this article is that it's accessible to non-Haskell programmers.

Guess the winner before you watch the video

Jelly Bean was 1 or 2 seconds faster to respond to most of the requests.  It did win the image search, but other than that they were close enough to not matter.  Hardly a blow-out.

I was going to say Jelly Bean wins before I watched, but that was totally based on the source of the video!

Great phrase from Conor McBride -- I like to think of types as warping our gravity, so that the direction we need to travel [to write correct programs] becomes "downhill".

I rely on the use of rich types to infer much of the software I write -- to just "derive" fragments of the software from its type specification, and get on with the interesting work. No room for hacks or misadventure to creep in, since there's only a few possible programs with the correct type.

And after years of richly typed programming, it is easy to forget how unusual - and luxurious - this engineering methodology is.

Want to know a little more about programming Haskell than just the buzz-words?

I gave a tech talk at Google, and now it's up on YouTube! No functional-programming experience needed…
