The ruby community would do well to act more like the php community in this regard - literally just stop caring if others think your tech is "dead" or not. Facebook and Wordpress run on php and I don't see the php community up in arms that php is not as cool as elixir.

Who cares! Just keep writing ruby and enjoy life!

I think most of us went on with life as you said. The people who stuck with Ruby will probably keep doing it for many more years. The ones who jumped ship to Elixir thinking it will be the next Ruby may be disappointed. Anyway hype comes and goes.
