It is nice to read what you write about successful use of Guile.

In my experience an e-mail account is still something everyone has and
which friends of mine use at their jobs.  I do not think this is a big
obstacle.  I believe all other on-line communication media have bigger
issues.  I would not like this to change currently.

Anyway, it is good if people know about Scheme and Guix because IMHO
the concepts they stand for are right and most important, even though
in (only) some aspects contributions are still desperately needed for
Scheme/Guile to catch up with other frameworks.  Diversity not only
fits the mission of the GNU Project, GNU also needs people.  But of
course others need people too and non-GNU or non-Scheme projects are
not always wrong.
