And in that respect, you won’t find me among the early-adopters. (Taking a page from “sometimes better isn’t better if it’s different” here.)
Still digesting the Aurelia announcement, but the adaptive databinding engine approach is such a no-brainer in retrospect.

I’ll stay tuned, and I’ll be watching Aurelia, but I’m mostly interested in how it will affect the roadmaps for other projects. Because frankly I’m sick to death of having being told I need to go learn this Completely New Framework/Paradigm/Whatever3 every six weeks.
- As a brief aside re: the icarian hubris remark above: let’s not lose sight of the easy-to-see flip side of that: that if anyone is going to propose a new framework, who better than someone like Eisenberg? who better than someone has been deep into other projects like this? And/but that’s also where the disappointment comes from — that it just winds up feeling like yet another technical leader decides to zig instead of zag, to go off and create a new thing instead of doing the hard work of taking something and making it better.
