> tools like Ruby or node.js or the cambrian explosion of javascript frameworks show that

Ruby appeared in 1990, JS in 1994 (iirc?). Saying they got "widely" (that's a relative term) adopted 15-20 years later is not going to convince me that "people aren't as stuck as I think".

Meanwhile we're still waiting for ideas from '60 and '70 to get to the mainstream. No, I really think people are a bit conservative when it comes to tools they use.
