Reference: Why Ruby?

I've been watching a lot of Clojure videos at the moment. I really appreciate some of the more philosophical directions in Clojure talks. Then I started thinking that other languages must have that type of philosophical talk, too.

So I searched for "Ruby lectures" and found this talk by David Heinemeier Hansson. He talks about what he likes about Ruby. He really shows his love for the language that has kept him engaged for so long. He ends with a passionate assessment of Ruby as a language that fosters freedom.

It's not exactly Hammock-Driven Development, but it's still an interesting talk and one that all dynamic programming language fans should appreciate.
