Depressing, but true
Another post from c.l.functional (my ISP is having problems, so I'm getting no interesting email). Scroll down a little after following the link to read the reply:

...he perceived himself to be a one trick pony (C expert) and perceived that the perception of his value in the marketplace was based entirely on the results of his last C based project...

...the whole dept would leave rather than use Erlang....

Does anyone have similar (or contradictory) experiences about the attitude to different languages in the workplace?
