Twitter feed recommendation: Meredith Patterson

Meredith tweets under the handle @maradydd and contributes much to the tiny niche comprising the intersection of type theory and security. For example:

  1. She shares links to and comments upon interesting contentshe summarises a 1964 post of Doug McIlroy's asserting four key failures of programming languages. (To recast these concerns as desiderata, I call these the McIlroy Systems-PL Minimum);
  2. Her retweets are sharp, e.g., on requirements gaps in formal specifications of programming languages; and 'It’s almost as if basing systems around an untyped programming language is a bad idea';
  3. And she promotes worthy things like the @typetheorypodcast and neat little sequent calculus tutorials.
