HELP: Programming Language of the Year

Having watched the computer world since grade school in the 1960's, it seemed that each year there was a new computer language to learn. Somehow I thought that this process had slowed down with Java. I was wrong. Flash is one example. Processing may be another.

So do you have a nomination for a particular year? Here are only a few:

1979 - MicroSoft Basic
1980 - VisiCalc (qualify as a language?)
1995 - JavaScript

I still need to match Forth, APL, Java, Flash, Structured Basic, Visual Basic, Fortran, Cobol, and Logo.
