I really dislike this policy when applied to programming languages. Things from pop culture are going to be referred to pervasively in the media and blogosphere, but programming languages don't get there without massive marketing pushes, press releases, etc.

That doesn't mean a language is not itself notable.

Anyway, there's plenty about Nim that is not primary:

That doesn't mean that the best resources aren't on the Nimrod website itself. But penalising a language for having excellent primary resources would be a bit crazy in my opinion.




I just discovered that blogs and other self published resources may not be used to establish notability for Wikipedia.

Basically Nim cannot ever become notable unless there are press releases about it or peer reviewed papers written on it. And without a company like Google garnering/writing press releases and none of the authors of Nim are at academic institutions... Well this is awkward.
