Competing With Fun

From Cory Foy (corrected spelling, sorry!), in response to Martin Fowler's recent "Microsoft and Ruby" observation...

Just like it is hard to compete with Apple because they are cool, it's hard to compete with Ruby because it is fun.
A funny comment to that post though...
I think Fowler time is over. It was about time, frankly I think he has lost it.
Let's hope not. His message, as usual, was "spot on" for Microsoft.

Thanks Patrick. Although it's "Cory" instead of "Corey". ;)

And yes, that comment was rather strange. One does have to be careful, especially in technology, because people sometimes equate passionate with religious. I think Fowler was on about a lot of things, and I was glad for the reaction it stirred up in the community.
