For those who are interested, I just posted a video of a talk I gave at CMU several weeks ago about Jane Street's use of OCaml. This is an updated version of the talk I gave at POPL last year. Various people have expressed an interest in showing the talk to their undergraduate classes, so I thought it worth mentioning on the list. Here's the link: http://ocaml.janestreet.com/?q=node/61 I can also provide the original quicktime file from which this is based on request.Jim Miller asked and Yaron Minsky replied:

Our blog is here: http://ocaml.janestreet.com And I wrote a post about our build system here: http://ocaml.janestreet.com/?q=node/36 Interestingly, it is the most popular post on the blog. Turns out, there are more people who care about version control than people who care about functional programming. (It's not that bad, though. The second most popular post is on type-indexed values).
Here is a quick trick to help you read this CWN if you are viewing it using vim (version 6 or greater).
If you know of a better way, please let me know.
If you happen to miss a CWN, you can send me a message and I'll mail it to you, or go take a look at the archive or the RSS feed of the archives.
