The Clojureverse is spinning out bold new libraries and implementations so quickly right now. In many cases, they are nothing new, and we should have been able to foresee them. They are simple logical deductions from the core principles of Clojure. It is simply a matter of time before fate plays out every combination and every natural consequence.
And what will happen then? We will need something better than Clojure. Like a great civilization, its gifts to the world will become commonplace. Most languages will have immutability as a default, they will have interactive development, they will have powerful concurrency primitives. Clojure will be like any other language. Clojure's influence is growing, and it continues to adopt what works from other languages.
But Clojure is not going anywhere yet. Its heyday is still to come.
