Haskell Weekly News: Issue 260

Daniel Santa Cruz
Welcome to issue 260 of the HWN, an issue covering crowd-sourced bits
of information about Haskell from around the web. This issue covers the
week of February 17 to 23, 2013.

Quotes of the Week

   * danharaj: zygohistobfuscatory maintainomorphism

   * merijn: after a week you can delete 80% of your code and replace it
     with whatever edwardk wrote that day ;-)

   * merijn: If Oleg is the unit of type hackery I propose Edward as the
     unit of haskell productivity.

   * edwardk: the merijn is the unit for the number of distinct units
     you've named

   * elliott: If you encounter an edwardk in the wild: nod reassuringly
     when he talks about something you understand. Under NO
     circumstances EVER give your GitHub account name
