I want to give a shout out to my friends and fellow Rubyists Ben Moore and Burno Bornsztein for launching Curbly, their DIY design social networking site (sort of Real Simple meets MySpace).

If that's not enough, they also threw together a little local news aggregator site called Oh you kids and your "domain name hacks"!

I'm not sure if I'd call them "Ruby on Rails Rockstars," though. :) Aren't rockstars usually trashing hotel rooms and doing lines of coke off a stripper's ass? Instead, Burno and Ben seem to enjoy hanging out, drinking beers, and talking politics. At least, that was my impression from RubyConf!
