Schemers in Haskell country

Before coming to this conference I hadn't realized how much the Functional Programming community is dominated by Haskell people. Most of the presenations are very Haskell-y even though in theory much of the work should be universal.

Although the Scheme people occasionally point out to a presenter that his work sure looks like something the Scheme people figured out fifteen years ago, the two camps seem to get along fine most of the time. Wait'll the coffee runs low, though.
