New blog post! #haskell

As some of you may have already heard, I'm moving to Austin, TX in a few months. The details of that story are now blogged below.
Hello all,. There's been a bit going on in the professional landscape over the past few months. I decided that I wanted to find a way to bridge my academic interests and my professional interests. This blog post is about what I did to get there and what's next for me.

It is done, and I am pleased with the outcome! An introductory tech talk aiming to explain some of the benefits of typed-FP.

Code samples available here: https://github.com/cabrera/presentations/tree/master/intro-haskell

#haskell  
The material is Haskell-centric, is introductory in nature, but should apply rather well to any other functional programming language with a statically-checked type system. In fact, I made explicit mention of this early on, cheering on the benefits of Scala, F#, Ocaml, ML, Idris, and others.

Polyamory has played a very important role in the development of my beliefs and identity. I wrote about some of my experiences and insights in my blog.
Thanks to my partner, I discovered Kimchi Cuddles today. I basically devoured the comic in two sittings. It has so much sage advice about having relationships, that I'm here left processing all of it now. It's not just about what it means to be poly, though there's a lot of that in there.

It started as a one-liner. #haskell  
I ended up playing around a bit with the Network.HTTP`` module. My goal was to make a one-liner to load test an HTTP service I work on. I wanted to see how far I could towards doing what I normally do in ab```, but in Haskell. Here's the one-liner for use with GHCi: import Network.

So this is a pretty big deal. With the recent OpenSSL issues, I'm excited to see Galois Inc. open-source their Haskell-based crypto-DSL. Very exciting!

Inspired by an unfortunate commonly held attitude of "I make no mistakes", and also in part by discussions I've had with +Jessica Cabrera.  Programming + People.
So here we go: let's smash a myth! On Realities and Perception. When I speak of realities, I mean something very specific. I mean: what is it that you perceive? What does society or a particular group hold as a collective perception? These two notions are respectively the individual reality and ...
