Hanging out with Paul Querna, a longtime Node.js core contributor and Rackspace’s systems architect, is more fun than a basket of kittens.

In this video interview, he and I chat about how far Node has come in a relatively short period of time. In fact, Node recently became the most popular code repository on GitHub, eclipsing Ruby on Rails in its number of watchers.

We also discuss whether the “OMG Node is the next Ruby!!!” hype has any merit.

Check out the clip above, and stay tuned to VentureBeat for ongoing coverage of the fabulous apps and interesting communities around Node.js.
