I think Jeff Bezanson attributes the interest to a blog posting by Viral Shah, another member of the development team, that hit Reddit. He said that, with Viral now in India, it all happened overnight for those in North America and he awoke the next day to find a firestorm of interest. I ran across Julia in the Release Notes of LLVM and mentioned it to Dirk Eddelbuettel who posted about it on Google+ in January. (Dirk, being much younger than I, knows about these new-fangled social media things and I don't.)
