I don't know about SIGCSE, but last week Matthias gave an invited talk 
at the International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP) with 
the title "TeachScheme! -- A Checkpoint", and it was videotaped. Last 
year's ICFP videos are online, so I expect that this year's will be too, 
shortly. Of course, the audiences are quite different, and what he has 
to say to a roomful of AP Java fans may be more helpful to many here 
than what he has to say to a roomful of people already convinced of the 
merits of functional programming. Still, I think you will find the ICFP 
talk valuable (I certainly enjoyed it), and it will help fill the gap 
until the SIGCSE one is available (if it is). --PR
