rupy is a Ruby *and* Python conference. Interesting. I'm trying to think of an example of something like this in the past...I'm drawing a blank. This is interesting new territory I think.
Are we seeing the emergence of a community that is not-so-much rabidy Python or rabidly Ruby but rather rabidly anti-something else. United by a common itch. What is the itch exactly?
Dynamic Typing or something more concrete like super-fast database web app dev (Rails/DJango/TurboGears)...I dunno but it sure is interesting.
