Discussion on: The Shocking Immaturity of JavaScript

People want to advance their career. If you release something in the JS's open-source world, you can get career advancement, conference spots, views on Medium etc. And these are rarely indexed on quality, rather quantity and shininess/newness.

I think that's the consequence for having the world moving toward virtual/internet. It's a broader audience, it's harder to differentiate, and to make it known. So one use marketing strategies, often disregarding the real work (one person has only 24h/day..).
