Comment on "Sanity Checking for Scripting Languages"

gives you a lot of Rails goodies without taking you too far away from what you know on a pretty intimate level
I actually like Ruby, and I'm happy to have an excuse to learn it. It's a spiritual brother of Objective-C in many ways. I do appreciate the heads up about PHP on Trax, though. I think a friend of mine will find this useful.

Currently, I try to wrap my head around ObjC and Cocoa and Carbon on the side, which is why I don't want to mess with Ruby now
Other than some syntax things, Rails makes a tremendous amount of sense to a Cocoa programmer (in my opinion). A lot of the dynamic language tricks Rails uses to make things work show up in similar ways in Cocoa.
