A look at ERLANG programming language

Love that +Rocky Barbanica is using our studio for other things than just having me on ( +Rackspace and Rocky built a studio in San Francisco that we're starting to use for a variety of things). 

In this interview with Joe Armstrong and Robert Virding, two of the co-creators of the Erlang programming language, Duncan McGreggor, Sr. Engineering Manager at Rackspace gets a journey through Erlang's background, look at its strengths, and ponder the future of computing in a distributed world.

Erlang has an history of 25 years of robustness and scalability and it still leading compared to newer concurrency oriented framework.
It is now a key component for many cloud companies. 
 
Yeah, this was a neat interview. We continue to feature Erlang at OSCON. As I understand, Chef just got an Erlang rewrite.
 
I have always been curious why Erlang is dynamically typed which is on the rare side for functional languages. Does anyone know the reasoning for this?
