Most notable about this from my perspective is that it is 299th unique RubyGem. That means there are 299 different pieces of software (not counting their many different versions) available for installation via the RubyGems system.
~/svn/MJWTI/Book chadfowler$ gem list -r|grep "^[a-zA-Z].*)$"|wc -l 299 ~/svn/MJWTI/Book chadfowler$
So, who’s going to create the 300th gem?
Be sure to watch the rss feed if you want to find out which gem pulled across the 300 mark.
