Google Engineer: We Need More Web Programming Languages
The problem is that we even have a concept of "Web" programming. There should be no such thing. It reminds me of the early 90's when we had Multimedia programs - those that could access a CD-ROM. It doesn't matter where you are running, where you data is, and where your output is. We need ALL of our programming languages to be updated to realize this. We don't write to files, we write to streams. Data is always just written to a store. The fact that the local store synchronizes with the server store is a library issue. We should be able to create "Web" programs with the same tools that we write all programs.

Actually his papers did finally come through. However, he is still on the no-fly list.
