The picture says it all.
This is weird.
When I started blogging about Erlang, I enjoyed being in a small niche of bloggers that write about "exotic" languages. I've never thought my blog would get all this attention. Sometimes, I don't like all this attention :) However, you don't always get in life what you've expected, so I'll do my best to enjoy the ride.
Erlang is just getting started. Erlang will make huge strides into the web development world. We will build frameworks that make Erlang developer's lives easy, if not easier, than those of Ruby on Rails developers. Ruby on Rails didn't exist two years ago, and Erlang (with Yaws) is years ahead of where Ruby was when Rails was born. In a matter of months, Erlang will be a serious contender in the web development world -- not just for developers who want insane scalability with 3 milliseconds downtime per year -- but also for developers who just want to get things done.
Real-time interactivity on the web is a relatively unexploited land full of opportunities for adventerous developers. These days, building real-time interactive applications with Comet technology in any language but Erlang just makes no sense. Erlang has 20 years of development behind it with the specific design goal of building scalable servers. No other language comes close. It also makes development fun.
As Joe Armstrong has said, Erlangers have a head start.
Libraries are coming.
