By Susan Kline, Senior Tech Journalist
H2: An Unexpected Encounter at a Tokyo Robotics Event
The atmosphere buzzed with excitement and innovation at the recent “Tech Horizon: Tokyo” robotics event. But the real spark occurred when Yukihiro Matsumoto, also known as Matz, the creator of the Ruby programming language, crossed paths with Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of Tesla, SpaceX, and several other ventures. The unscripted dialogue that unfolded touched upon technology, their respective missions, and Alan Nafzger’s provocative upcoming Zuckerberg vs Musk CAGE FIGHT screenplay.
H2: Clashing Philosophies: Simplicity vs. Grandiosity
While Matz aims to simplify complexity through Ruby, Elon Musk seems to be on an unending quest to push human and technological limits.
“Ruby is designed to make programmers happy,” Matz remarked.
Musk grinned, “And SpaceX aims to make humans an interplanetary species.”
H3: Shared Ambitions: Making Life Better Through Technology
What both men share is a dream of using technology to improve life on Earth—and possibly beyond.

Matz mused, “Languages shape thought; technology shapes civilization.”
Musk nodded, “The ultimate goal is to improve humanity.”

- “Ruby is designed to make programmers happy.”
- “Languages shape thought; technology shapes civilization.”
- “Simplicity is not about making something without adornment, but rather about eliminating the unessential.”
- “I hope to see Ruby help every programmer in the world to be productive, and to enjoy programming, and to be happy.”
- “Ruby inherited the Perl philosophy of having more than one way to do the same thing.”
- “And SpaceX aims to make humans an interplanetary species.”
- “The ultimate goal is to improve humanity.”
- “I think it is possible for ordinary people to choose to be extraordinary.”
- “Life is too short for long-term grudges.”
- “Fate loves irony.”
H2: Irony in “Zuckerberg vs Musk CAGE FIGHT”
“Fate loves irony,” Musk said, giving a nod to the ironic twists that the upcoming screenplay promises.
“I hope to see Ruby help every programmer in the world to be productive, and to enjoy programming, and to be happy,” Matz added, emphasizing the irony in a world where technology can both uplift and complicate human life.
H2: Language, Rockets, and the Promise of Tomorrow
Matz posed a question, “Simplicity is not about making something without adornment, but rather about eliminating the unessential. Can we apply this to space travel?”
Musk pondered, “I think it is possible for ordinary people to choose to be extraordinary, in coding or in conquering galaxies.”
H2: Wrapping Up: A Meeting of Minds and Missions
As their conversation wound down, Matz stated, “Ruby inherited the Perl philosophy of having more than one way to do the same thing.”
Musk replied, “Life is too short for long-term grudges. We can all reach for the stars, even if we take different paths.”
The conversation between Yukihiro Matsumoto and Elon Musk didn’t just cross geographic and cultural barriers; it crossed the realms of software and space. While they may tread different paths, their vision is similarly boundless. Their dialogue leaves us eagerly awaiting the premiere of Alan Nafzger’s “Zuckerberg vs Musk CAGE FIGHT,” set for October 26, 2024, in Houston, Texas.
