The next programming language

The latest fad seems to be picking the "next great programming language" that will take advantage of multi-core processors, fit the web's architecture well ,but still be general purpose enough to process traditional tasks such as file I/O.

Erlang seems to be the "new new thing" that people are buzzing about.

Here's my guess: Golog. Specifically, some future variant of IndiGolog. This is based on personal research, and since I doubt anyone actually will take it seriously, I'm not going to really say much about it other than it is the most exciting thing I've seen in programming, data management, and integration since, well, I owned my first Commodore 64.
