Lars T Hansen: Evolutionary Programming and Gradual Typing in ECMAScript 4
"ECMAScript 4 (ES4) provides a range of facilities for evolutionary programming - evolving a program in stages from a simple script to an ever larger and more reliable software system. also important are namespaces and packages, union types, generic functions, and reflection."
Interestingly, Brendan disagrees with the notion that IE stagnation helped bootstrap the web application cambrian explosion 2.0. I still (2005-12-28-flawjax) think it was an absolutely necessary condition; could the Firefox developers have kept up with a rapidly developing moving target? I doubt it.
Anyway, be sure to read (at least) the conclusion: Type safety and fixtures for libraries (code intended to be consumed by many), typelessness for glue/control code. Sounds like The Right Thing.
