From an email recruiting a "technical co-founder":

"Compensation: A large equity share for a few months until we secure funding."

Disappointed in the Haskell type checker for the following:

lucky :: Int -> String
lucky 8 = "Yup!"
lucky 4 = "Not so much."

ghci> lucky 13
* Exception: Non-exhaustive patterns in function Main.lucky

Just read this article about how OCaml catches errors like this statically.

Requiring open access to the results as a condition of public funding for research seems like a no-brainer to me.

Journals are extracting way too much money from a process whose primary funding comes from elsewhere, and they're crimping the flow of useful information in order to do so.
