Bjarne Däcker has written a great thesis about Erlang's adventures
from the lab into Ericsson products, and later to the outside
world. Bjarne ran the Ericsson computer science lab throughout.

The reference is "Concurrent Functional Programming for
Telecommunications: A Case Study of Technology Introduction",

Of course Erlang's not a buzzword, but it's doing well, and has an
interesting history.
