Hah, thats pretty good. I've noticed that kind of thing developing too.

I suspect part of the reason we garner more attention than a few other
languages (ie: Haskell, lisp is back on the rise, etc) is well...
initially learning Erlang is not particularly hard in comparison to
other "functional" languages, though I don't really put Erlang and
Haskell/Scheme/*ML in the same playing field. It would seem the ease of
getting into the language fools those who don't understand what they're
attempting into thinking that its going to be an easy language to pick
up, which in my opinion, to really understand erlang, its not easy.
(Takes a lot of work to understand proper implementation of parallelism ;)).
