Please, when making reference to algorithms, papers, pundits, and the like, make URL reference that those of us that neither academics, nor pundits ourselves can follow to understand. (The alternative, of course, would be for you to give full footnotes explaining your citation.) We are pretty good at making references to other nodes (easy to do) and to the monks among us. It is a fair bit of effort to add these other references, particularly if we have to do a little research, but if we truely want to share our wisdom, we must give some stepping stones for seekers of wisdon to cross the stream of ignorance. -ben
There has been criticism that I have not used any refeneces myself. First and perhaps the most obvious is to a URL.
The next obvious omission is to examples of where I would expect to see references:
- 400121 Makes references to Standard ML and Haskell (Scheme is pretty well known)
- oops. I can't find the nodes that I thought were academic (rather than practical) and without reference to their citations.
I'd be glad to remove this node if anyone finds it offensive. -ben
