Ruby overview

A friend is a big Ruby fan... He and I made a video giving the current state of Ruby. I was surprised to find out that there are so many books coming out on Ruby and RoR.

It is definitely absurd but it is in earnest (with a stylistic nod to Giles B and the Archaeoptyrex presentation):

Just wondering: what do you think? useful? silly? both?


ps. FWIW, I am not 'Future Man' in the video ;-)

I agree. Here's the link:
