JavaScript is awesome. You can start by making small tools and there's a much better chance that someone uses your Roomba electricity cost vs furniture placement optimizer or other niche application if it works straight off a website. The language scales well to larger projects. With node.js and Closure Compiler you have the same language running on the server, a virtual machine with JIT, a compiler with proper type checking with type inference... And in the browser you have 3D accelerated graphics and parallel processing. It's still easy to amaze users because most people haven't seen the technology used to the fullest.
