(Sorry if this has come up already, I'm not all up to date)

Well, maybe I'm being harsh, but I had a look in Wired july 2002, red
cover yelling "The Next Intel".

'lo and behold on pages 60-61, a huge programming language graph.
Ruby has incoming arrows from Eiffel, Smalltalk-80, Python as well as from
Sather. So far so good, I think.
But along comes a notes box on page 61 and states that
Ruby is "A hardware description language"...

.... and I thought that graph was a good sign at first :-(
