David,

May I suggest this Google query?

+erlang&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

Also, please keep in mind that Haskell is lazy so performance is  
often unpredictable. Plus, Erlang is dynamically typed which means  
that it's harder for the compiler to generate optimized code. Erlang  
is usually compiled to byte code whereas Haskell is a native code  
compiler with full static typing.

The fact that Erlang is on par with Haskell in the benchmarks should  
say wonders about Erlang.

	Thanks, Joel
