I am also interested in what others think of this project, I don't understand why this project isn't more popular.

Most people won't change their mind about anything, unless everyone else already did. Therefore, (Kay concludes at 24:00), truly new ideas take at least 30 years to become popular.

In order to make some project popular, you need to show it's powerful in doing REAL work. Ruby on rails did it for ruby. Paul Graham's success and writing did help lisp.

Is there some similar proof for ometa ?
