nothing much

I'm sorry I haven't posted more frequently. There are many interesting things going on at work, but I'm not sure how many of them I can talk about without leaking Company Strategy.

I invented something kinda cool and linguisticsy the other day but then was referred to a paper from a decade ago that was the same idea.
And I hestitate to even link to the paper for fear of leaking the problem space I'm investigating! Maybe if the project ever launches...

Tech: uh. I mostly hate computers. I played with some Haskell over the weekend, but I'm still pretty slow to wrap my head around IO.
Is this:
makeRandoms :: Int -> IO [Int]
makeRandoms n = sequence $ take n $ repeat $ randomIO
a reasonable way to generate a list of random numbers? I feel like I understood this at one point. I think I even wrote a post about it.
