I'm currently interested in:
- Shutt's work on first-class operative combiners (fexprs): ftp://ftp.cs.wpi.edu/pub/techreports/pdf/05-07.pdf
- Amin and Rompf's work on collapsing towers of interpreters: https://www.cs.purdue.edu/homes/rompf/papers/amin-popl18.pdf
- Hoare's communicating sequential processes: http://www.usingcsp.com/cspbook.pdf
Interested means, "the abstracts are cool but the concepts are currently over my head." Unfortunately I'm very slow to get CS stuff through (under?) my head. Personal because the closest I'm going to get to any sort of language design during my day job is writing small term parsers for ehs.stanford.edu's search. My evening and night jobs are playing with my kids, eating, and sleeping (mostly).
