Erlang as Killer Programming Tool

This article, actually about a proposed new Lisp, is very intriguing as you think about a possible
future for Erlang.

Note that, consistent with the views expressed in many papers by respected programming visionaries,
the future lies in server-based programming. I believe that Erlang is well suited to this.

Is the community (or Ericsson) interested in moving Erlang more mainstream? It appears that it has
less distance to travel than Lisp!
