On a more serrious note, I am surprised he didnt just link to the chart
comparing the relevant terms.

Smart, independent thinkers tend to be early adopters. The fact that people
are working in Rails or learned it themselves is a first good impression --
the other day, I had a young fellow call me about some work and he said he
had experience with c, java and assembler and that his algorithms were very
good. He then proceeded to ask me what Ruby on Rails was.

This article discusses outsourcing to Asia, and links to an informal study
(using Google Trends) of where various technology terms are hot search
topics.  J2EE and XML are hot topics from India and elsewhere in Asia; "Ruby
on Rails" from the Western US.
