Let's learn us a Haskell

Let's say you've been meaning to learn Haskell for a long time, secretly yearning for purely functional programming, laziness and a type system based on more category theory than you can shake a functor at.

Now's your chance. Erik Meijer is teaching an online class Introduction to Functional Programming on edX, about which he says, "This course will use Haskell as the medium for understanding the basic principles of functional programming."

It starts today, but I've gotten a head start by working through the first few chapters of Learn You a Haskell for Great Good! which most agree is the best place to get started with Haskell.

Anyone up for a Seattle study group?

It must be some pack-rat instinct that makes me compile these lists.
