Programming a functional future
Cameron Laird discusses the future of Functional Programming in his LinuxWorld column, as well as the types of problems which FP attempts to solve.

As long as we're on CL, I might also mention his article on Scheme and Java in SunWorld that discusses the Silk scripting language. Silk is a set of Scheme routines that allow you to write Scheme code that's targeted for the JVM. It also allows the Java code to seamlessly access the Silk modules.
