Stylish Academic Writing

Surprised to discover myself the subject of a "Spotlight on Style" in Stylish Academic Writing by Helen Sword. Thanks to @ctford for the heads up. The segment is about titles (no surprise there) and also quotes Robby Findler, Simon Peyton-Jones, Ralf Laemmel, Sam Lindley, Simon Marlow, Martin Odersky, Enno Runne, and Jeremy Yallop.

Leaving Connor McBride off that particular lists seems like an oversight.
The write is not a computer scientist, so she can be excused for an incomplete list.

The article made me realize how utterly successful the trend has been. I always prefer a funny title, if I can find one. I wonder whether other disciplines follow that too. Well done Phil for introducing it.
