Of course there is *much* else to do than only writing software. I
thought that Thursday was focussing on the question which of quite a
number of tasks would result in the largest per effort increase of the
number of Ruby proponents - not necessarily of the number of programmers
using Ruby.

Two (perhaps extreme) examples of why these meanings 'popularity' are
quite different:

Plain C is not very popular as a programming language that your children
should learn but it is perhaps used for the largest number of programs
that are written - if one takes into account the many programs that run
on machines that most people would never call a computer but that by
definition are.

Visual Basic for Applications on the other hand is very popular but
compared to the number of installations only a tiny minority of all VBA
users actually use that language for programming that is worth the name
(i.e. anything that at least involves one logical decision).
