I've released Rubymine, a place where rubyists can obtain
great knowledge within time of working together. There have
already been an article and a few announcements.
Looks cool. But I'm so confused by the high number of
different-but-similar Ruby websites. It seems like there are lots of
websites, forums, email lists, etc. with somewhat overlapping purposes.
Maybe I'm being unrealistic, but it seems like a lot of duplication of
effort. Don't get me wrong - it's awesome that there's such a broad
support network for Ruby users, but it's hard to figure out where to go
From what I can tell, we have:
ruby-lang.org: news, documentation, some projects
Ruby Garden: blogs, wiki
Ruby Forge: software project home base...
but many Ruby projects seem to have their own websites too (Rails,
Ruby Talk: email list
comp.lang.ruby: NNTP version of Ruby Talk (I think)
Ruby Mine: blogs, forums
Ruby Forum: more forums
Is this how it is nowadays with other small but popular languages? How
come so many people make their own place to post Ruby info, rather than
reusing what's already there?
