Ryan Dahl steps away from Node’s day-to-day tasks

Somehow I missed this last week at the NodeSummit, perhaps because I was there only the first day and not the second day. Namely, that Ryan Dahl has stepped away from running the Node.js project. But that sounds scarier than it really is, because what he announced is that Isaac Schlueter is now the gatekeeper, a job he had formerly performed. This means Isaac will be making the day-day decisions of which patches go in (or not). Ryan says that "After three years of working on Node, this frees me up to work on research projects" and that "Our energy will now be largely focused over the next few months on improving the third party module system experience including a website for browsing modules, a new addon build system, and binary installations from npm".
Software should be a show. The development must have a tinge of entertainment. There must be a plot. Frequent releases are necessary.

It's amazing how many awesome @nodejs projects people are working on. Node is being used in all sorts of places I would have never imagined.

A dynamic language on top of a massive (yet fast) runtime is not "Close to the metal". But I'm glad people think of it that way #nodesummit

Normal people should never be allowed to access shared memory in parallel. I cannot think of a saner programming axiom.
