Tangible Functional Programming

In this beautiful google tech talk, Conal Elliott makes a convincing case that API and UI should in fact be one and the same -- while currently there lurks one of the deepest schisms of IT. Among other things, he makes this rather outrageous statement (see 17:40):
The essence of programming has nothing to do with programs.
but of course not without thoroughly backing it up. In fact, he presents a prototypical tool kit which does just that. The talk gets a bit technical towards the end, but should be accessible (and I recommend it) to everyone with a general interest in programming and user interface design.
