A video every Ruby developer should watch. ( and all other devs, but they would be sad.)

Every developer should watch "What killed SmallTalk could it kill Ruby, too.":http://railsconf.blip.tv/file/2089545/ from RailsConf. This is a whirlwind tour through the history of software development from Small Talk to C++ to Ruby. It is both ammusing and informative.
He also talks about two of my favorite subjects, "Test Driven Development":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Test-drivendevelopment and "Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD)":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fear,uncertaintyanddoubt .
