Well, CouchDB has good buzz and reasonable size. Rusty Klophaus's Nitrogen is really cool, and self-demoing too. I like Mochiweb because it's so easy to tinker with (and Sean Hinde's old iserve-prototype, which I think can be found on TrapExit somewhere). Yaws is pretty easy to get into.

(I'm not sure whether each of these demo the headline features of erlang as such, but it's a way for someone interested to get started with something reasonably familiar.)

Best,
Thomas
