I'm more Ruby than Python, but recently it's been all Android and ObjectiveC ;-) I think you are right about Python being used in Pierre Omidyars Civil Beat, that's one of the examples I had been thinking of. I used to run the Ruby Users Group so I probably encountered a disproportionate number of people using Ruby ...

I think that local community news thing that the founder of eBay is doing is being written in Python.... other than that, it's unspecific... I peruse job postings and I seem to see more reference to Python, at least with the ones that seem interesting. However I just searched "Python" and "Ruby" on craigslist and about the same number of jobs came up. Not everything is on craigslist however. Sorry, it's all very unscientific... :) Do you use Python?

Interesting, I do know of several companies using Ruby/Rails, e.g. Ikayzo, Camber etc. I haven't yet heard many references to Python. Would love to hear specific examples of Python usage if you are in a position to disclose that information.

Many thanks in advance

I'm new to the area but I seem to see more reference to Python than Ruby here in Hawaii... Probably due to the more science/military influence than the market economy. I've never used Python.

I was just asking in the Python group about the number of companies that use Python/Django. Any comments on how many companies in Hawaii use ruby/rails?
