It had been a while since Meteor came up in my news feeds.

Sure, these things take time. Still, almost four years after Meteor first launched, I have to admit I thought the framework would be more widespread by now. So what happened?"

Happy 10th anniversary to jQuery! Thanks for all the help in making sanity out of the old browser wars and bringing a host of new developers into the field.
