Introduction: John Watson

Hi. I was a (mainly imperative) programmer for more years than I care to remember and gave up paid work a few years ago. Since then, I've become fascinated with functional programming and I've been trying to teach myself category theory so that I can understand some of the abstractions. I've struggled - my maths is not strong. I still write software as a hobby - these days almost exclusively in PureScript.

I am particularly interested in various ways of representing music on the web. I am a keen amateur musician - my main love is the traditional music of Scandinavia and Ireland .
