I haven't translated it all yet (it's quite long to translate, and I'm just
doing this because I'm bored ^^), but here you go. Please pardon the spotty
translation, but at least it gives you an idea so far. ^^;;

[from Rubyist Magazine / RubiMa]

(interview with Matsumoto Yukihiro)

Notes: In every issue of RubiMa (~Rubyist Magazine) we plan to interview
famous Rubyists.
Of course, for our very first interview, we asked for an interview with the
father of Ruby,
Matsumoto Yukihiro.

Mr. Matsumoto has been interviewed previously by Linux Magazine (December
1999 issue), CNET
Japan (though it was unaired), IBM developerWorks, and Slashdot Japan;
however, for this
interview, (he seems to) want to tell us the parts that he left out of the
other interviews.

And so now we go to the place, for the interview...
