​Believe it or not, Ruby seems to be regarded as a fad by the "tame geeks"
that venture capital funds have been sending to us to perform "technical
due diligence" on our copmany.

Perl 5 was born in 1994 and Ruby in 1995, so that's one year between being
perceived as obsolete or a fad.

The battles I've been fighting with regards to this are not technical or
even rational, but social and political.  Its all about the perceptions of
the powerful, which are hard to influence unless you are already very
successful, and at which point you no longer need to influence them.
