Erlang definitely needs more and better marketing. The research grant
the scala crowd won [1] is supposed to tackle the "Popular Parallel
Programming" challenge.
The first question in my mind after reading [1] was: "Have these good
folks never heard of erlang?" Apparently not, or not enough.

In a sense erlang is reminiscent of the debian linux distribution: it's
rock solid, proven and works well for almost all work loads.  However,
all the excitement and the hype is on the cool new(?) kids that fork off
debian (e.g. ubuntu).
