Duality: values <-> continuations

Values and continuations are supposedly dual (for an interesting
example see [1]).  From[2]:

  We can think of continuations as a lack of , or request for
  values. We can see this duality in another way: values are the
  present's view of past computations, while continuations are the
  present's view of future computations.

So if a function takes a value to a value, what takes a continuation
to a contination?
