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?

PDP-11 macro assembly language was my very favorite for many years. In those days most computers did not have the power to use today's elegant and powerful languages.

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

Moore's Law seems to be the solution to most language design problems.

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

Functional programming. Multiple levels of abstraction.

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

I started as a mathematician, spent 15 years as a programmer, and now I'm a tech writer.
