I'm a n00b with Erlang, but it looks to me as if essentially Erlang's
playing client and Ruby's playing server.

I'm running a time management experiment: I'm only checking e-mail
twice per day, at 11am and 5pm. If you need to get in touch quicker
than that, call me on my cell.

It's neither :)

There is an Erlang process and Ruby code acting as an Erlang node.
They are completely the same from the point of view of Erlang VM.

In fact, you'll *want* your Erlang node to be the server and Ruby node
to be your client. The example simply demonstrated how Ruby could be
used to communicate with Erlang using electricity
