Ironic. Tim Bray chose to offer "Erlang itself? It’s too weird"...

...the same day he chose to offer...

The Methodphitamine

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.

So is Ruby "too weird"?

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.

Luckily. =8-D
