I am a consultant and the author of 24 books on artificial intelligence and the semantic web. I use this blog to share ideas and code snippets using my favorite languages: Clojure, Java, Haskell, Common Lisp, and Ruby.

JRuby 1.0 released
Great news! Although I also use Common Lisp and Java a lot, Ruby is a favorite programming language because code is so concise and easy to read. If I never had to worry about runtime performance, I would use Ruby even more. I suspect that JRuby will evolve into a reasonable fast language even if the JVM is not the best runtime platform for a dynamic language like Ruby.
