Control surfaces

I lost the link to this a while back, but Jon Udell pointed at it recently: Controlling agent societies with Ruby: Rich Kilmer and Dana Moore. Which could be subtitled - Java good for plumbing, Ruby good for taps. If you're into scripting, agents, testing, gaming, simulation, or glimpses into the future, you'll probably enjoy it.

More about Cougaar here, and here. You could sum it up as a distributed agent melting pot - emphasis on working code over architecture and standards. I studied this stuff in college, good to see some of it up and running.
