JavaScript: Most Important Language Today

According to Steve Yegge’s latest blog post, JavaScript is the most important language in the world today. After some arguments to convince you that his outrageous claim has real merit, he then goes on a rant about how much JavaScript sucks, and how he wishes it was more like Ruby on rails. Here is a great quote from his post:

Well, if you happen to be doing web programming, Ruby on Rails defies classical language mechanics by actually being a lower energy state. That’s right; it’s more lazy to learn Rails than it is to try to get your web framework to be that productive, so people are just tunneling over to it like so many electrons.

Excellent stuff!
