Since you have the content for both, what would make an even better
presentation would be to side-by-side it with Ruby and Python... split
the page and on one side show Ruby, on the other Python, and just
highlight the differences. Since most of the syntax differences are
trivial (and you can note when they are not). This way you one-up
your presentation by highlighting the concepts in meta-language (since
your thrust is UNIX concepts instantiated in code), and you aren't
"just another Ruby talk".
I'm not saying this as a Python bigot... I think this cross-language
stuff is at the heart of what CodeMash is all about.
