Planets all over the world

So, recently I've worked with Jeroen Schot to get Planeet A-Eskwadraat he created integrated in our member-administration system, such that all of the about 1600 members of A-Eskwadraat can add their own blog to it. Nobody did yet, but well, we'll need to do a bit more of promotion first, I guess.

I just read about yet another planet coming into existance, after a suggestion of Isaac Jones, Antti-Juhani Kaijanaho created Planet Haskell. Something you'll need to bookmark, because those pesky Finnish names are impossible to remember and later spell correctly. Not as bad as hugeurls, but... close :).

Haskell is really cool, and I hope it'll gain relevance and become more widespread. The more people are introduced to the somewhat radically different approach to programming compared to most traditional programming languages, the better. Even if you rarely end up programming in Haskell, you'll benefit from it.
