Latency is a big deal. If your app does not respond in 0.1 seconds, then you have a problem.
- Began as deploy / operational play
- Will impact development
- Rails have solved the deployment issue
- Lift (Scala) has a lot of neat features like easy Comet support
- Nitrogen (Erlang) has a strong focus on UI.
- Bleah, slow
- But getting optimized for speed
