Back in 2003, Paul Graham gave a keynote speech entitled "The Hundred Year Language" (he later expanded this for his book "Hackers and Painters"). He envisioned what an early 22nd century programming language would look like ... what would control the flying cars and robot spaceships.
To my eyes, it looks a lot like Clojure.
He talks about languages that can be highly expressive, yet can be tuned for better performance. He explicitly references Lisp, Clojure's very-close cousin. He's concerned with parallel computation (which is to say, concurrency) ... which is one of Clojure's strong suits.
In any case, check it out ... and see if you are seeing what I'm seeing.
