Brian Ford (@brixen ) gives a very interesting talk @ jsconf 2012 about the conversation of ‘which is better?’. He points out that humans really don’t do well at comparing things.

He looks at the support and excitement in the Node.JS community. How javascript has a large number of developers, but perhaps has some challenges in the future. Then looks at ruby on rails -vs- node.js.
