What I think we see are

1 languages or tech promoted by companies like Google, MS or FB

2 developers that self promote by creating a side project using the latest buzzwords and coolest languages of the month and sharing it, some do it for the CV but others do it for learning to see what is all about.

HN can't predict the future, good tech can die because is not supported by a company with money, or the company that controls it is incompetent and kills it. I am still thinking that C# and .Net could have been more popular only if MS could have just open source it from the beginning, maybe we would have now a way to do cross platform WPF apps and running them in browser with an open source Silverlight
