How Capitalism Saves Ruby From Corporatism

Summary
Nathaniel Talbott explains: the revolution isn't free - none ever is. If we want to keep Ruby real and not have the life sucked out of our community by soulless corporations we have to learn to take value and turn it into cash. And yes, we *can* learn!

Bio

Nathaniel got into Ruby in 2001 in hopes that it would be the future. Ruby has since exploded, giving him a paid excuse to never touch Java code again, and he couldn’t be happier. In the meantime he’s founded Terralien, instigated Spreedly, and learned a lot of lessons about how to actively build the future, rather than just living it.

FutureRuby isn't a Ruby conference, but a conference for Rubyists. This is a call to order - a congress of the curious characters that drew us to this community in the first place. We have a singular opportunity to express a long-term vision, a future where Ruby drives creativity and prosperity without being dampened by partisan politics.
