SPJ always seems very intelligent and measured.

I knew what video this was even before I clicked the link. It's very interesting because a lot of people get annoyed by the initial presentation and completely miss the point, which is about language (and hardware!) evolution to find the optimal balance between safety and practicality.

Agreed. Personally I'd prefer to see more movement from Haskell towards the "top right" of his diagram, but I recognise that there is a lot of movement from the "top left" families of languages. There's still a lot of work to be done, though.

I think “left-to-right” motion is considerably easier than “bottom to top”, which is why we see more of the former and less of the latter. And honestly I don't think it's such a bad thing: it's good to have stuff on the “bottom right” to act as beacon, in a sense.
