Breadth of Languages

I spent most of today reading Julia documentation. It looks pretty slick, but I guess I’ll have to try it out on something new to really kick the tires. It does strike me as more of a hyped up Matlab instead of a JIT’ed Python. For a new ecosystem I’m a little concerned that it might be too much too soon. It has all the shiny things about being a new language, like consistency and lots of involvement, but I don’t know what will keep fueling the momentum.
