I am writing a chapter for a book called "Beautiful code", edited by Greg Wilson. The chapter is a tutorial about Software Transactional Memory in Haskell.
I would welcome any comments or questions you have on the paper, or constructive suggestions for improving it; the more concrete the better. You can see what people said about version 1 on the version 1 talk page: Talk:SantaClausProblem .
The book is aimed at a general audience of programmers, not Haskell geeks, so I have tried to explain everything necessary as I go along. So if you are not a Haskell expert, your input would be particularly valuable to me.
You can email me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org), or add Wiki talk notes below.
If you give your real name somewhere in your text (or email it to me), I'll add you to the acknowledgements at the end of the chapter. Notably, I'd like to acknowledge Steven807, Tibbe, Fanf, Garious, Rycee, Brecknell, Mvanier, Gaal, Fernando, Gknauth, EngineerScotty, BoAdler.
