Hey Paolo,
My post has nothing to do with your book.
What are your resources for Ruby in general (forums, articles, tips and tricks, people on twitter ...)?

I'm not Paolo, but I find that the InfoQ Ruby channel is a decent way of keeping tabs on what's happening in the Ruby community.

Thanks, Lasse (hey, long time no see!). I'd also add that most good information in the Ruby world travels via blogs. My suggestion is: find a good RSS/Atom aggregator and begin with one or two good feeds (infoQ and Artima Ruby Buzz are good entry points), read promising entries, and follow links to find other blogs to start following.

Also look at the Rails Envy podcast. These guys are very good at keeping on top of things in the Rails/Ruby community, and they also quote many good blog posts - more aggregator fodder.
