History of programming languages

Here is a diagram with a "family tree" showing the history of programming
languages. Ruby is in there.

It shows Ruby cross-polinating from Perl, Eiffel, Smalltalk, and Python.

The author also has diagrams for the history of Unix and Windows. The
Unix one is very impressive. Unix is truly a diverse family.
