Python vs Ruby

Depends on your experience. If you know C,C++,Java and the whole
C-syntax-bunch. I'd recommend Python just to learn to adapt a different
syntax. If you want to learn for the learnings sake, i'd also recommend
Haskell to try functional programming, if you do not already know it.

Ruby has some interesting concepts, Python (well CPython) does not
have. Blocks for example, which make Continuations possible. In Python
you need stackless Python (a different implementation) to do this.
