David Seah's site pointed me to this article at Slate1 about the legendary story of Why the Lucky Stiff and his campaign to teach programming through Ruby. I've superficially kept up with the saga and disappearance of Why but this is a good overview.
It's a compelling look at a supremely passionate person and their chosen art form.
I don't care for the style of the article. It is a jumble of stories intermixed with poor transitions between each...much like my reviews. Slate ↩
