Damian Conway and "Quantum Superpositions" in Chicago
Dr. Damian Conway, Monash University, Australia
Take two quantized disjunctive/conjunctive equiprobable scalar datastructures, add a dash of multidimensional polymorphism, a handful of redefined operators, and a pinch of breadth-first optree evaluation. Simmer gently in the Principle of Least Effort. Decant into a grandiosely named module. Now serve vector operations (prime generation, list membership, list extrema, etc.) without loops or recursion.
(Tim Maher asked me if it's meant to be a parody lecture. I know it looks that way, but actually it's just like my Coy paper at last year's TPC: serious science and useful Perl techniques smuggled into unsuspecting brains hidden behind a dazzlingly stupid idea - Damian)
