We’ve had a lot of discussions of Rails as a disruptive technology, but now David Geary is focusing on explaining the growth (and imminent growth) through the lens of Gladwell’s tipping point. Geary believes that Rails is standing right in front of the tipping point or perhaps even on it already:
In the end, of course, this blog entry is simply my musing. Will Rails hit a tipping point and become widely adopted in the near future? I am certain of it; in fact, I think the tipping has already begun. But, of course, only time will tell. In the meantime, I continue to have a blast every day trying out new things in Rails and figuring out the best way to show my future readers how to do them too.
