This is the article I mentioned in my RacketCon talk this year, which is 
an expansion of my RacketCon talk from last year. Self-serving Hacker

(Every week on Hacker News discussions, I see some of the same 
misinformed arguments about floating point. This article addresses most 
of them, so please go upvote it for the sake of informed discussion. We 
do not want people being wrong on the Internet!)

A big thanks to Konrad, his co-editor Matthew Turk, and the CiSE editing 
staff, who worked very hard with us on the article. Also, thanks to 
Vincent Lefèvre (http://www.vinc17.org), Matthias Felleisen, and Robby 
Findler, who reviewed it.
