"Twitter builds some of its code with the Java programming language,
but it fashions the majority with Scala (a language that, for many
programmers, lets you create software with an ease that eclipses Java)
and a bit with Clojure (a language that feels like Lisp, a way of
quickly scripting code that has been a mainstay for decades). LinkedIn
mostly uses the Java programming language, while sprinkling in some
Scala. But the common denominator is the JVM, software that has been
finely tuned over the past fifteen years to run code at speed."

I don't buy the Second Coming of Java, but of the JVM. Without
significant changes the Java Language will fall by the wayside
eventually, something more expressive and powerful will take it's
place. I'm placing my bet on Scala right now.
