Or why you should only write an eighth of the code. You live and breathe http. Most of the things you do with a computer involve it. How many tiny little http-related utils have you already created? Is it time to stop? By no means, we all do it. I'd just like to encourage you to write the next one in Go. It's a fun little language, which feels like a cross-breed between C (pointers!) and ruby (concise, powerful syntax). But how much? Why, yet another language, but my perl/python/.. does all the things? Well, it does. But go has a few things that make it super sweet, is web-scale and real fun to use! Or at least come and listen how did we get rid of 87% of our codebase in a day :-)
