Hello!

I am an architect studying the future of information.

I was wondering how Ruby may play a role in 
visualizing information. The area where
where cosmic information is turned into human 
knowledge is something I find extremely
interesting. I'm sure you all would feel the same way after seeing:

http://www.visualcomplexity.com/vc/

Now, according to its owner, most of the projects 
at Visual Complexity are written in
either Java or Flash ActionScript. Clearly 
something is missing. According to Paul Graham
at 
http://www.itconversations.com/shows/detail188.html, 
Java is at an evolutionary dead end.

So my question is---how can one use Ruby to visualize information?
And perhaps enjoin it with OpenGL, Cairo and Verse?

Thank you for your time,
Kyrre Nyg?rd
