Language of the Day

Just came across Clojure -- haven't decided if I would use it for anything, but it's rather neat. It's a Lisp dialect running on the JVM that is designed specifically for concurrent programming. While it's not a pure functional programming language, it moves a ways in that direction, and uses some functional techniques for easy, safe parallelism. It's a bit aggressively anti-OO for my taste, but it looks to be a rather elegant and practical little language for when I'm in a Lispy mood...
