I feel slightly overwhelmed

So, about three weeks ago I posted about Javascript, different languages in the browser, bytecode, etc..

I then crossposted to Hacker News, where it generated a fair chunk of conversation, including comments from some people who worked at Netscape.

And then today I discovered that Brendan Eich, who _created_ Javascript had picked up on it, and had done a ten minute talk triggered by it! (It's well worth listening to if you're at all interested in this kind of thing.)

It really does feel funny when a 30 second whine on my journal can end up with one of the prime movers of the modern internet giving his opinion on it.

Personally, I hold robhu responsible for suggesting the idea to me in the first place.
