Atwood's Law - "Any application that can be written in JavaScript, will eventually be written in JavaScript."

Can we skip to the bit where we start re-writing software that we re-wrote in JS in other, more appropriate languages? :P

Not yet. Let's wait a little longer, that way those of us who would do the writing will be more valuable.

My hunch is that those other languages don't exist yet, but afterwards we'll realize that those were even less appropriate than JS.
