Sorry for the slightly off-topic post, but I thought it of interest that
Brendan Eich (the "father" of javascript) has blogged about the future of
js, and specifically how he will "borrow from Python for iteration,
generators, and comprehensions" and more generally why he is "standing on
Python’s shoulders" when appropriate.


The fact my name appears there is a happy coincidence related to the fact I
am working with Mozilla on making their DOM "language agnostic" and
supporting Python - but the general reasons why Python is seen as important
is interesting...
