Joshua,

I think you should just pick the language(s) that keep YOU motivated. The only hard requirement seems to be that you need the clients to work on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X. A web framework seems to exist in every language these days so that doesn't really narrow down the selection. I believe you shouldn't use a language that you don't personally enjoy using as you'll never know if anybody else will work on the project. But if you don't work on it it's 100% sure that you won't find any collaborators.
