According to wikipedia, a revolution (from the latin revolutio, “a turn around”) is a fundamental change in power or organizational structures that takes place in a relatively short period of time. Somehow, I believe this is exactly what Ruby has done in the programming world, especially with the help of Rails. Over the last few years, Ruby lead a mini revolution in the midst of software development. Thanks to Ruby, developers now look at software development differently.

Twitter, Hulu, and YellowPages are failures?

Anyway, from the original article: "This doesn’t mean that Ruby is dead or that Rails is “passé”. To the contrary, Ruby imposed itself as a new valued and respected player, a new standard if you will."

You may wish to further research your references to Twitter and Hulu and YellowPages if your intent is to use them as Rails anti-patterns :)

Premise of article understood but it fails on delivery. I take it that the point is that ruby is mature now and they are focusing on making it stronger. Therefore, it has passed the revolutionary into the evolutionary. I think that is what the author is trying to say but not sure.
