Mystified by monads? Somehow both simple and complex, and notoriously hard to internalise, they can be slippery little things. Let's help each other out.
If you understand monads, and would like to help, please prepare an explanation of how you understand them, and then come along and share it. If you don't understand monads, come along and listen, and hopefully, someone's way of looking at it will strike a chord with you.
Because of time constraints, shorter explanations are better, about 10mins please. Yes, I know, challenging!
