Count me in! Thus far, my evangelism has been mostly at the
word-of-mouth level, and, of course, using it for everything internal I
can. I had a moment of satisfaction when an officemate of mine (who's
convinced, but hasn't had the time to learn another language yet) told
me "one of my friends was planning on learning Perl, so I told him about
Ruby and showed him ZenTest as an example of the cool stuff you can do
with it". Another friend is interested in Indian scripts, and is eager
to use Ruby for his next project if the Pango bindings are decent (I
wasn't able to tell him anything about that, but he's been hanging out
in #ruby-lang).
