Justin took 4 months to reimplement this web app using Spring
and Hibernate.

[snip]

Recently, Justin decided to re-implement with Ruby on Rails.
Bruce said that this took a total of 5 days ...

[snip]

Despite being an expert in the best-of-breed Java frameworks
and a novice in the Ruby on Rails frameworks, he still managed an 8x
improvement in productivity ...

Is not it more like 24x?

I was assuming a 5 day week and that during those four months he actually
had *real* weekends with his friends and family.
