 There was some discussion about learning erlang last December.
 Here is a post I did back then

 googling on 
 learning erlang OR fp OR "functional programming"

 turns up more resources as well.

I have the feling that these languages have a lot of practical value, but is is hard to come by without the theoretical background. defmacro.rg is very valuable because it presents the thinking of FP in a language which is understandable for programmers in vonventional languages.
