The Horses are Riding the Men

I’ve been dabbling in the Ruby programming language of late, after years of Perl and PHP and Visual Basic and dBase. I’ve been finding it really fun to program in Ruby — more fun than I’m used to. It occurred to me that as much as I like Ruby, even more so I like the person I become when I use Ruby. In a sense, then, Ruby is programming me.

The title of the post, by the way, is taken right out of a Curtis Driedger song, a great one. You can hear Curtis, ‘though not singing about horses, in this found sound. Want more Peterborough? Here’s a list of the 100 Greatest in the Performing Arts in the city.

That’s how I feel when I’m writing Cocoa apps. “Wow, I’m totally sticking to the MVC model, go me!”

Neat list…cool to see the names of old friends and acquaintences, and what they’re up to around Ptbo these days.

Amazing that a town of 80,000 can have a list of 100 like that…some big names in that list. It confirms what we always knew about Ptbo…that it was an arts hotbed lurking under a demurre and conservative exterior. I wonder if artists still feel they have to move away to make it or if there are more people staying there.
