The functional revolution is underway, people just don't realize it yet. 
My favorite example is Java's revolutionary "Spring" framework, which uses
"inversion of control" -- basically just a weak, limited version of
function passing.  Sooner or later business will start to realize they
need to move beyond Java/C#: it's just going to take some nudging along.
