Moving FP from Academia
A debate is raging on c.l.functional about how to get functional languages from academia to industry. This link covers many of the posts, but it's better to read the discussion in a threaded usenet newsreader (I use Netscape).

In the middle it gets a bit bogged down in funding problems, but there are good points about: the importance of libraries and documentation; what researchers should be researching; what people want languages to do etc.
