What got you interested in this group? (Are you here for the programming languages, the theorems, or the types?)

No answer yet

What's your favorite programming language?

I'm really enjoying Haskell these days

What 's one thing your favorite programming language does wrong, and how would you fix it?

I'm not expert enough to think that much is wrong with it, but I would make some pragmatic changes based on modern usage. Remove some of the bad decisions in the Prelude, make popular GHC extensions part of the language by default (OverloadedStrings for one!) and do something to make it easy to derive lenses without Template Haskell.

What programming-language-related or type-theoretic idea are you most curious about, or most intrigued by?

Dependent types are particularly interesting to me, but I still have a lot to learn about what's currently available in Haskell.

Who would win in a fight: Ada Lovelace with the power of flight, or Alonzo Church with the power of invisibility?
