tutorial directory - Ruby

I visited Lua's Tutorial Directory and got the feeling that Ruby should have such place too. This would be a good place to make contributions. I hope a few of us have some (not yet allocated) sparetime to put into it. At the moment Ruby's directory is rather empty. http://www.rubygarden.org/ruby?TutorialDirectory try compare above with Lua's tutorial directory. http://lua-users.org/wiki/TutorialDirectory -- Simon Strandgaard...

    There is also a list of online Ruby articles on ruby-doc.org:
    http://www.ruby-doc.org/articles/

    Not all are tutorials in any meaningful sense of the word, but there are
    a number of them there.

    (The amount of information on ruby-doc has grown quite a bit since it
    was started, so a redesign/refactoring is on my elusive To Do list.
    Certainly it should be much easier to locate information by topic,
    author, article type, and so on.)

    Is there any chance any of these articles can be subsequently mirrored
    to the std-lib.org site? I notice a few of these are now dead links?

    Maybe even a pdf convert, in case someone complains about losing the
    sidebars and whatnot?

    When looking at other languages, I find myself looking for their "pickaxe".
    I'm not looking for lots of tutorials (most of which are totally unhelpful),
    just one GOOD one.

    Also, is anyone even looking at that particular Ruby tutorial directory? I
    didn't even know it existed. Someone new to Ruby certainly wouldn't find
    themselves there; they would find themselves being pointed to the pickaxe
    again and again.

    I guess I just don't see the need being filled by that particular page.

    Perhaps I'm missing something?
