On thing i do know is that he was working on Shoes 2, and on his Shoe 
web site he had references to two other languages that he though was 
neat (Scala or Clojure I think), but the other one he mentioned a lot 
and deserved a look at was REBOL.
http://www.rebol.com/index-lang.html

First built by one of the creators of Amiga OS.  The goal is to be the 
premier Internet language, to remain small (well under a meg for the 
whole thing), and super easy to use (but breaks many standard 
programming conventions that a lot did not like.  Well REBOL 3.0 has 
been in the works for over a year and will most likely be the last big 
huge effort to get this programming language to "Grow Up" and get out 
there before its time passes it bye.

He may have just cut all Ruby ties to work on this language and help the 
5 man team.  In his Poignant Guide he points out that he had actually 
looked at Ruby before, but put it down thinking "Poor little language 
does not stand a chance."

Well Ruby is here to stay, but perhaps this interesting internet 
language (REBOL) being rebuilt from the ground up has called _why to its 
cause.

Check it out and see if that may be where he vanished to.
