    I have a question about monads ... if they are really the "fundamental unit of composibility" as put forward in a few of the Channel9 interviews with Brian Beckman and Eric Meijer, then isn't it practical to assume that the goal should then be to ensure that everything is in a monad?  Does that actually make sense, and is it even possible?

    It depends on how far you want to stretch the meaning. We actually talk about his in an upcoming C9 Conversations piece with Dr. Beckman Smiley So, I'll let him explain.

    Sweet!  Another Beckman episode coming soon.  Can't wait!

     

    Any chance he is finally going to spill his guts about the secret project???  Probably not.

    I would love to see the concept of monads applied to source control management.
