I like that! Now to come up with a similar visualization for spectral sequences 🤔

Playgrounds can have multiple pages, so no need to delete if you think it'll be useful later.

this is a fun reference: . also suggest just searching for "geometric algebra" and Haskell for lots of interesting papers and articles.

One recommendation I’ll make is to look into “geometric algebra”, which studies higher generalizations of cross products, so has lots of applications to graphics programming. Once you understand that stuff it's not too out of reach to dive into manifolds and differential forms...

From the sound of it you seem to be more interested in some higher dimension geometry and calculus kind of stuff, rather than the more theoretic topology that I'm used to...

Hey! Most of my topology recommendations are a bit higher level. If you give me some examples of the kinds of things yer interested in that reference topology, I can maybe come up with an appropriate source!

The extra data is useful for testing. It’s a data description of the side-effect of tracking the event, without actually doing the tracking. Then the "AnalyticsEngine" can be a naive interpreter of those events by making the URL requests with no logic!

You can also see this from the perspective of algebra on data types: Notice how the two middle cases can be factored further.

This is the Linux bug: . Pretty annoying…

The only reason I found this was because I had a failing snapshot test on Linux which was testing an email we will be sending out to our users, and emails use absolute URL's. That was pretty cool!

Due to a bug in Foundation on Linux, our parser+printer router wasn't generating absolute URL's to the website root properly:
