Ruby’s creator Yukihiro ‘Matz’ Matsumoto is going to become an honorary citizen of Matsue city where he lives.
The city will award three people this time but other two are awarded posthumously. Matz, a 44 years-old geek, is the youngest recipient of the award.
Matsue city considers Ruby and Matz as very important “assets” of the city. They held a conference called ‘Ruby World Conference 2009‘ in September to strengthen their presence in Ruby community.
