How to find web hosting that meets my requirements?

I'm looking for new personal hosting after using Dreamhost for a while. I'm looking for hosting which has the following features:

* Shell access (obviously)
* Prebuilt LAMP stack (optional)
* Python/Ruby support
* Scalable
* Good speeds around the world (I travel a lot)
* Not too expensive?

What are you using currently for hosting and why do you like it?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Ah, Ruby support is the biggest drawback with DreamHost's shared hosting. Is that the reason you're leaving DreamHost? Also, you should just edit your other web hosting question as they're really 2 parts of the same question. – Lèse majesté Oct 4 '10 at 16:45

they have worked great for me over the last few years, great support and all the features you need.

Lunarpages is another host I use that works great and I believe they have all those features.

Site5 is decent and cheap - they went through a period in the past where they screwed some stuff up and their support wasn't great, but they've been good since a year or two ago.

I like Media Temple. It's more expensive then dreamhost, however, the price determines the quality. The customer service is so much better.
