GSoC, RubyLand, or Finally Something Useful from Oreilly Ruby Blog

Instead of the normal vapid content like this, this announcement about RubyLand was actually sort of interesting as an example of solving small tasks using EventMachine and drb.
Rubyland’s goal is to simplify writing tiny scripts for small tasks. I’m planning to build it using a mix of dRB and EventMachine. Rubyland’s core will aggregate events from desktop applications, file system updates, other computers on the network, etc.. Rubyland will then call user-written Ruby scripts in response to those events. Initially Rubyland will target the Mac OS X platform in some ways, but its core will be cross-platform, so that plugins can be written for any platform.
