Matz wants to create Babel-17. Or hack your brain. Maybe both.

I link to it over on The Farm, the developer blog I write for Tucows: Yukihiro “Matz” Matsumoto’s very interesting slide show, The Power and Philosophy of Ruby. It’s an interesting presentation on the “why” of the Ruby programming language. Whether you’re a programmer or someone interested in how language influences thought (or get turned on by the phrase “Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis”, and hey, who isn’t?), it’s a great read.

In case you haven’t noticed, I’m feeling extra-nutty today.

I was just reading about this very topic last weekend.

I was fascinated but was greeted with yawns and desperate intended-to-be-covert glances for somewhere else to go anytime I tried to share.

I think I’m hanging with the wrong crowd.

Very interesting, especially for me at present, as I’m just starting to learn assembly for the first time.
