So there are management advantages to node (having the same language across
an entire group is beneficial, just not quite as beneficial as people
think). Also given the now fairly long history of async web development
frameworks (twisted, tornado, and now node) it feels kind of like its
becoming a standard, and there's a good sized and healthy community. The
actual architecture (single threaded with asynchronous callbacks) makes it
quite a bit easier to wrap your head around than some other
multi-processing architectures like say, Java multithreading.
