Hi David, following your work on Visi/.pro, thought I'd post your latest blog post to the Reddit Haskell group since that's what it's built with.  Would it be accurate to say that Visi is a sophisticated Haskell DSL?

And in case you're interested, there was a discussion on another of your Visi articles a few weeks ago:

I think of Visi as:

A new millenium take on the Excel/spreadsheet modeling language.  Visi is built on Haskell and takes advantage of Haskell's rich and powerful runtime features including threading, laziness, Iteratees and more.
 

And in case you're interested, there was a discussion on another of your Visi articles a few weeks ago:

Thanks.  I realized that community is mostly already aware of Visi, so I didn't need to describe it.  Just posted the github wiki link instead.
