Jon,

"Pushing beyond the bounds of reality" is just what is needed to handle the
web services future.  Current ways of scaling data centers and web
applications requires a good sized pitch of money.  When, not if, these kind
of infrastructures are built, mashing-up a new worldwide company's virtual
IT infrastructure will be easy.   Planet sized problems will have the needed
technical resources.

Erlang's features or its successors will be of vital help.  They give us a a
glimpse of Things to Come <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Things_to_Come>.
Where will it end?  Given these capabilities the answer is "Y" of course go
ahead.
