Any reason for why Ruby was not represented at the recent LL1
conferences at MIT? Python and Perl were, and so was Curl. Even a
3-week old language, Paul Graham's Arc, was heard, and apparently
impressed a lot.

Simon Cozens, a Perlman, who was an attendee has a nice one-sentence
comment about Ruby: "Sadly, few people seemed to have heard much about
Ruby, something they will probably come to regret in time."

Andy, Dave, and Matz too busy?
