You know, I still find metaclasses in their present incarnation to be awkward and surprisng to use.

I could live without them—provided a reasonable alternative were provided. And that’s the catch. I’ve not seen one.

posts like this would compel me to start coding in Ruby if I didn’t already

Tell me now oh beautiful and spacious

Am I in trouble with the Eigenpolice?

Eigenpolice are looking through my folders …

They will never understand our culture

They’ll never understand the Eigenpolice

HA! /obscure?

More thoughts:

I think metaclasses are reaching for lesser-surprise and cupcakes via efforts like why’s metaid.rb, and darned if they haven’t become indispensable to me, but I feel like there’s still more to be done…

This thing with metaclasses trying so hard to be their parent classes, only not… do you think it’s really helpful?

leonard cohen parodies, a 100%-unsurprised panel of rubyists, and mr. malky’s love of metaclasses – this is why i love redhanded.
