LOL – you really have to laugh at this piece of PC insanity:
The British Ruby Conference has been cancelled, after a row started over allegations the speaker roster at the conference is insufficiently diverse. The controversy eventually became too much for organisers, who have cancelled the event.
OMG. And what was the problem? That the speaker roster, based on merit rather than PC quotas, had all white males. That should actually tell them something about the insanity of PC quotas but I bet it won’t.
Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.
And as for the technical side, an unnamed techie opined: “Wonder why nobody uses Ruby for serious work?”
