Functional Programming with Bananas, Lenses, Envelopes, and Barbed Wire
Today I finally found time (and will) to read a this classy paper. My first impression, well written, it is not boring, or too technical/mathematical. If a term might be unclear or unfamiliar to the read, then there is a reference to it, and there are plenty of resources on the web to get you going. Personally, it challenges me to start a small research on some subject while reading a paper, and it only makes a main paper more interesting. I hate when I need to read a paper that deals with a subject that I am familiar with, and when I have to go through all the basics and easy stuff (stuff that I already know) just to find an answer to the question that I am looking for.
