On the web-side, dropbox and reddit are using a Python-based back-end.
Just because there are many different options in different languages for generating websites does not mean that python is dying.
According to http://readwrite.com/2012/06/05/5-wa...e-most-popular, Python ranked near the top in terms of the number of tagged questions on stack overflow and the number of projects on GitHub. Python hadn't changed position much from 2010 (http://readwrite.com/2010/12/10/rank...ming-languages), remaining in the upper corner. That is, statistically it showed no shift in position. The same applies for 2014 (http://redmonk.com/sogrady/2014/01/2...rankings-1-14/).
However, given those statistics, Python was 5th in 2013 and 6th in 2012, so actually moved up a place (as a result of C falling from 4th in 2012 to 7th in 2013). And, accoding to Ohloh monthly commit stats, Python is growing faster than Ruby (http://sogrady-media.redmonk.com/sog...e-rankings.jpg).
