Is Chandler’s Demise Evidence that Dynamic Languages Can’t Scale?

Manageability.org asks the question “Is Chandler’s Demise Evidence that Dynamic Languages Can’t Scale?”. For a quick reply, I’ll quote a Reddit comment: “Even if it was, such a badly-managed project wouldn’t be a good example.” Software projects have failed long before the current dynamic language hoopla — see Jeff “Coding Horror” Atwood’s article, The Long, Dismal History of Software Project Failure and the articles he cites for a backgrounder. All the projects cited in these articles most likely were developed in solid, respectable, God-fearing, non-communist static languages.
