I think the demise of FORTRAN is overstated.  That there is an X3 group 
still advancing the language attests to that.  While FORTRAN may be a 
60-year old language, Fortran is not.

As far as assembly, I don't believe that it's a dead language.  When you 
need simple, rugged, low-power hardware, it's still a very good way to go.
