    Interesting but I didn't really see anything that said when not to use Erlang.

    I cannot get the video to play beyond 19:17, in chrome. Am I the only one?

    Hi Ben,
    We've tried in various browsers on Windows and Mac machines and the video seems to be playing just fine. We suspect it might have been a temporary internet connection problem on your side. Please let us know if you still encounter the problem.
    Thanks,
