I'm pleased to announce the kickoff of RubyForge project called "Why Ruby?"
whose goal is to help spread the use of ruby by providing a central
repository of presentations, papers and advice on promoting Ruby.

Please visit (and contribute to) our site:

  http://whyruby.rubyforge.org/

Below I have pasted some of the text from the project's home page.

===================================

= Why Ruby? =

After all, there's Python and Perl (even Java, C#, and C++), so why Ruby?

The <i>Why Ruby</i> project is here to help you answer that question.
Whether
your audience is corporate management, your team lead, or your fellow
developers, this site can provide you with the material and answers you need
to make a winning presentation.

== Goals ==

The goal of this project is to address the practical aspects of getting
Ruby more widely adopted
in the workplace by being an ongoing resource to those people who want
to promote Ruby.

This site will contain:

* Advice on promoting Ruby
* A repository of contributed presentations and papers that can be reused
(in whole or in part) in your presentation.
* Example presentations for different audiences created specifically for
release on this site.
* Links external resources that may be valuable to the promoter of Ruby.
