I've been growing to like dynamically typed languages like Groovy and Python. I feel about them like I do about flying cars - great for me and my projects, but I'm still wary about how it works out when everyone uses them. My static typed background worries that someone's going to lose an eye. The flexibility is alluring, however. I also appreciate closures, list comprehensions, and being able to pass around functions.
I am a co-organizer for RailsBridge Boston, an outreach program that introduces women to programming in Ruby and Rails.
Lycos, go get it!
