Another thing you can do is check out IronRuby, the .NET
implementation of Ruby (put very succinctly). Then you can build web
services and such the .NET way, but using Ruby as the source language.
Some of the folks with whom I've discussed IronRuby plan to use it as
a "bridge" between their existing .NET skills and their future plans
for RoR.

Just an idea.
