For homework, I found the Litle Schemer in PDF:http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/jaredmc/The_Little_Schemer_-_Daniel_P._Friedman_-_4th_Ed.pdf
Blaine gave an excellent talk! I'll try to incorporate some of the principles of functional programming into my day to day.

Excellent talk indeed! The non-fancy language aspect of the talk was very much appreciated. I finally understand what the hell currying is! Can't wait for part II.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
