Some Reflection On Node.js

Node.js is a strange beast. It's a technology that might just be worth the hype surrounding it. In this day an age, when everyone expects ‘viral' to be part of their marketing campaign, when something actually does become popular rapidly and ends up with a bunch of people talking about it, it's easy to discount the validity of the hype. Especially when it's something as unexpected as serious developers being outspoken about how amazing JavaScript is.

It's almost like you're living inside of a bad joke… But I gotta tell you all, this is no joke. Node.js really is all that and it doesn't matter what the business folks say, what the marketing folks say or what the jaded developer to your left snidely derides. This is serious technology and it's relevant.
