The power of Ruby Brigades

|I think the coolest thing in this post is that your son wrote you a program for Xmas. That's awesome.|
"Brigade"? I organize the Phoenix Ruby Users Group. We're not a brigade, a term I find grating. It suggests either some manner of martial activity, or a high degree of rote behavior, neither of which holds much appeal for me, nor describes the group's monthly gathering.
|I find "Ruby Brigade" has a nice ring to it. Typically I say "Seattle.rb" though, much shorter.|
|I like it! Have any Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Westside, or Southbay Brigades taken form yet?|
|I like Ruby Brigade because I like the name.rb moniker. I don't like Ruby Users Group for basically the same reason; I can't stand name.rug.|
I like the term Ruby Brigade only because it sounds comical.
|I'm glad my friend introduced me to ruby. Now I'm trying to help some more friends see the benefits of ruby. I'm doing my master's work in Ruby and I really appreciate how it helps me develop faster, web and otherwise.|
