Ruby is so blisteringly alive right now. A year ago all our websites were dormant. In fact, I was exchanging e-mail with a publisher last March and they were sort of egging me on to write books about stuff other than Ruby. And, seriously, the rationale was: are you sure Ruby is going to be around when your book is done?? I heard confidence in sales of a Ruby book.
Some life-giving spring is flowing down to our riverbeds and lilypads, folks. Everything is lush and warm and awake. And it all is just happening in a bewildering spontaneous animation.
Stuff like: Tim Sutherland started up the Ruby Weekly News outta nowhere. (How many months back was that Tim??) And now he’s syndicating the RWN in the form of an official blog. Slurp up the Atom or RSS and watch the full newsletter roll onto your porch each week. And, furthermore, well done to Paul van Tilburg, who graciously donated the site to Tim! The goodwill is relentless in these parts!
