I played around with Haskell in 2000-2001 with a network engineer colleague, and became somewhat proficient with elementary aspects, while working for Boeing as an airline flight instructor, using $40 million airline simulators.
Now a decade later, I am operating CNC Mills to produce precision aerospace parts, and would like to see a development group established to write Haskell code for these computerized machines which currently use G-code. Perhaps standards should be set by a steering group to enable a Haskell-to-G-code compiler or interpreter.
Any ideas??? This could really become a world-wide effort, and revolutionize the computerized machine industry!!! I hope this blurb catches everyone's interest.
Haskell is the absolute best language to do this. Let's do it!

This sounds interesting, but it is better to start a discussion on the Haskell/Haskell-cafe mailinglist, not many people read user pages. (Note: the Haskell mailinglist can only be used to start a discussion, the rest of the discussion should be done via Haskell-cafe.)
