Thanks for your reply. Good points.

Flash was innovative! Adobe provided technology to build dynamic web content long before HTML5. They just had the right product at the right time.

Totally true. Also as soon as something "better" appeared, it kind of died very fast. It was innovative, but also not unique enough to stay.

The main benefit of Coffeescript...

So true. It was trendy but didn't have any real advantages except Ruby-likeness. As soon as people considered something beyond RoR it kind of lost its value in peoples eyes

Do you know Gartner's hype cycle?

Nope. Thanks for the pointer
