Why do programming languages succeed or fail?

magicmat (59459) writes "UC Berkeley EECS graduate researchers Leo Meyerovich and Ari Rabkin have compiled an interesting data set on the sociological aspect behind programming language usage and adoption. "Socio-PLT" is the result: compiling survey results from Berkeley's recent "software engineering" massive online open course, SourceForge, and two years of The Hammer Principle online surveys, they have discovered some interesting phenomenon about what we, as programmers think about our languages, and why we use them. You can head over and explore the data yourself using cool interactive visualizations, and even fill out a survey yourself to have your say."
