    S-P Jones is undoubtedly a very smart and able guy, but saying that he basically invented Haskell could come across as a bit misleading. Haskell arose as an attempt to get an open source version of David Turner's Miranda, and as a consequence shares a lot of its DNA with that language.

    cheers

    @s n: Those were my words. I think it's fair to say Simon was more than instrumental in the advent of Haskell and both Simon and John pay tribute to Miranda, the grandmother of Haskell. Chalk up the inconsistency in terms of credit (if true, in fact) to me.

    Do you know why the singers at the Sydney Opera House are so good at calculus?

    All that practice at arias under the curve.

    @Charles: We will have to start calling you Santa Charles soon, with all these gifts. I thought that was it from Simon for a year or so after the YOW interview

    Simon acts like he doesnt care about Haskell at all :-D Seems like his fellow John is more careful about language reputation.

    Charles, I just want to say that your videos are awesome and I appreciate them immensely. I have thought about mentioning that many times after watching a video of yours and now I took the time to do so. :)

    The keynotes as well as other talks will be available on the YOW! Conference site in early 2012.

    We will let Charles know or you can follow #YOW_Oz.

    Thanks! for Charles for joining the YOW! Australia community.

    Best

    Dave

    That's my old professor! I love that guy (John)! How luck would have it, to see him making an appearance on C9.
