—Matz, on Ruby becoming “Enterprisey” (via project.ioni.st)

that’s almost a shock, makes me afraid. but he’s right—at last railsconf europe for example, sun, ibm & co showed up. pushing their tools, and ideas of “how to develop”, without any deeper knowledge of ruby. let’s hope they’ve learnt or are willing to learn, and aren’t just disguising just to enter this market and sell their stuff to people who can’t tell the difference.

make sure ruby and the community stay the way they are, it’s what’s makes it special, and what made it successful.
