What is the simplest thing that can be done with a data set that is still useful?
I immediately think of https://datasette.io/
Interesting! I see where you're going.
But is that actually useful? :) Datasets don't just exist to be manipulated, but to explain something useful about the real world. What I mean is that a tool to simplify creating a box plot out of a CSV file is more likely to build a user base than a general algebra over datasets
Bold claim: every widespread language has at least one widespread framework, in the wide sense of the word.
I say success of a language is impossible unless hard decisions are already made for some practical area of expertise.
My personal experience in this domain was at university studying numerical analysis and computational physics. For some dumb reason I really wanted to use C for everything at first. When I got around to anything using matrices, though, the boilerplate just killed me. I switched to octave. Sure, having a bunch of math stuff built in was useful, but what really saved me was a compact syntax built for the problem domain.
That's why I'm not sure just using raw Haskell would be the right idea.
I never got around to learning python, so I'm curious to know in what ways it was flexible enough to get heavy adoption for mathematical programming
