It's a great story but why is the AXD301 (a project from the 1990s) still held up as the flagship example of the virtues of erlang? Is this still the best we have?
The software development universe has evolved from where it was in 1997. Surely there are more recent examples of projects where erlang delivered functionality and reliability quickly and cheaply.
