FYI, in 1988, Self (a dynamic, prototype-based, garbage-collected language that had a JIT) existed. I'm not sure how it handled concurrency, though.

Not well, unfortunately. Neither does it handle errors well. It doesn't have proper closures, either. I love it, but readily admit it's a giant research demo.
