Absolutely - the discussion around Dart is enthralling and you will learn a
lot about programming language design and get a great understanding of the
shortcomings of current practices. There is a brain trust of talent at
google and from the community at large giving their opinions and it is one
of the richest and most passionate exchanges of ideas I have seen in a
while. But I agree that Dart has a lot of obstacles to overcome for
acceptance and Brendan Eich himself has said you will never see it in
Mozilla and other browsers. Browser Wars Redux.
However, the real point of the post was to highlight yet another opportunity
where bringing external content into the P2PU would provide another great
learning opportunity on a hot topic.
