interesting, but full of inaccuracies (no variables?)...

Originally designed for programming massive telephone switches with hundreds or thousands of processors, Erlang has no classes, objects, or variables, and its file handling is miserable, but there is still a lot to love about it, Bray added

I wonder if Tim Bray wants to be remembered like that.

Well, his bio page suggests that he may well: http://www.tbray.org/ongoing/misc/Tim
