comment How did JavaScript become popular?
@Mathnerd314 Current emerging frontiers include multicore and cloud computing. Indeed, this is something that a language like Erlang could capitalize on. (Another example is the rise of Objective-C because of the emergence of smartphones, since Apple is such a big player in that space.)

comment What is language-agnosticism and why is it called that way?
I think it should really be called language polytheism since the belief is that there is more than one path to getting something done.
