Some websites I have found interesting recently (in no particular order):
(Whew! This is a long one! Apparently I waited a little too long to post these!)
Mail — What appears to be a spectacular Ruby library for checking/sending/generating/parsing emails.
Identity in the Browser — A very cool mockup of what it would look like if logging-in and managing accounts on websites was built into the browser. This feels like a hint of the future. And I can’t wait! Putting the controls in the URL bar makes perfect sense.
View Cookbook for SQL Jockeys — An explanation of CouchDB views for SQL people. Honestly, while this was helpful, I need a lot more examples before I am going to truely get this map/reduce stuff for CouchDB.
An interesting 404 error — Seems like it would only be interesting to people who are familiar with HTTP status codes, though.
And now some Node.js links (I’m grouping them here in case you aren’t interested in my latest obsession):
Video: Node.js by Ryan Dahl: Video of the talk whose slides I linked to last week. The talk honestly doesn’t add that much to the slides (he did some good work with those!) but it is really fun to put a face to the person.
restler — A super simple library for making HTTP requests from Node. I don’t need this currently, but this looks like everything I would want.
