The big craze about functional programming reminds me of when Java was first introduced, and we were collectively told in subtle and not so subtle ways that programmers were not smart enough to be responsible for their own memory management (malloc/free) and/or doing so was dangerous. Perhaps, some of us were not smart enough to do that.
In the past three years, I've implented three small projects in Clojure. The thing I liked about programming in Clojure was that I had to think differently about solving a problem. I still have to think differently in Perl, because it isn't C.
Anyway, this post was interesting.
