fp takedown

Don’t blame the messenger. I just saw this and it’s hilarious. Gilad Bracha is one of my new heroes now :)

Watch this video and unless you’re an overly sensitive haskell zealot, you’ll find some humor here. There’s a lot of hype-busting and sacred-cow-killing.

Of course, he’s no stranger to controversial programming views (“Maybe Monads Might Not Matter”, “Types are anti modular”, “Objects are not hash tables”, and “Chased by One’s Own Tail”), so you might enjoy reading his blog after watching the video!
