Ironic. Tim Bray chose to offer "Erlang itself? It’s too weird"...
...the same day he chose to offer...
The MethodphitamineSo is Ruby "too weird"?
That’s the name of Jay Phillips’ metaprogramming model and his write-up of it... As an example of the apparently infinite richness lurking under Ruby’s hood, it’s mind-boggling and awe-inspiring.
I’m not sure I actually like it.
I've got nothing against Ruby weirdness. Weirdness has its place. I learned several "weird" languages before I *ever* learned a "normal" curly-braced language.
