Programming Language Fiction
The latest issue of The Monad Reader (an electronic magazine vaguely themed around Haskell) was released this week — but rather than featuring technical articles, it’s a special “poetry and fiction” edition. I decided to have a go at contributing, so I wrote a story about programming languages: in particular, what’s important in a programming language. It’s explored indirectly, via a discussion of one of my other interests: films. If you’re interested, take a look. I’m open to feedback on my contribution, and I imagine Brent (the editor) is also interested as to whether the special edition was a worthwhile experiment.
