R is also a functional programming language. There's a free shortcourse on it at 
Coursera

Stew, sounds great. Feel free to publicize your FunKy meetings on this 
list and post them on the kyoss.org calendar. 

(Also, maybe a little refresher on why it was that we're so excited 
about functional programming. I'm sure I know; and it'll come to me any 
second; just need a hint or two. :) 

Thanks, 
John
