I don't think it's so important to promote Haskell
as to promote language diversity. In most
environments, industrial or academic, people
usually have to use one language because it's the
standard language in the place. Once I had to use
Fortran to write code just because teachers in that
university believed Fortran is the best tool for
numeric programming (and we can understand that,
since they were never exposed to anything else).

It would be nice if people understand that it's
better to have one group using C++, other using
Python and other using Haskell than a lot of
people using the same language.
