Programming languages as a hobby


It’s odd to say this, but recently I’ve started reading programming language papers as a hobby. It’s actually rather depressing as it’s only reinforced the massive disconnect between engineering in practice and current computer science research. Isn’t it frustrating to see loads of good ideas just ignored for a variety of reasons, from opaqueness to poor marketing?

I’ve recently been wondering about the “idea graveyard”, which is where all the good ideas that’ve been ignored go. How many ever escape it?
