Re: John Carmack on Functional Programming in C++
I've taken quite a liking to the functional paradigm... It has a lot more advantages than a lot of people give it credit for. First class and anonymous functions, closures, the whole deal.

I never really appreciated it until I tried learning Common LISP... Maybe I'll pick up Clojure soon since I can use it for much more practical application than Common LISP at the moment. (Because JVM is more ubiquitous, and exporting executable LISP images produces rather cumbersome files)
