The article does a good job of citing some of the major problems with JavaScript and how a reborn library called CommonJS (formerly ServerJS) is addressing each of those problems. No one can deny JavaScript’s usefulness on the front end of the web, but if you’re a developer do you support the efforts to move it beyond that?”
