Applescript made sane

Graphing Your Favorite Feeds with NetNewsWire and Ruby :: dot unplanned:

After the election, my list of feeds in NetNewsWire became the source of some consternation. I’m still not completely recovered from the “must … know” paranoia that grips me, so I’m loath to unsubscribe to the political stuff: What if the world starts to end? How will I know?

mph has been doing some very interesting posts about using Ruby as a potent antipsychotic for Applescript. Here he builds graphs of attention scores for his feeds in NetNewsWire. I need to do this myself – too many damn feeds. Interesting and fun series. Check it out.

This week.

Rails validators

dzone – fresh links for developers

Any number of Digg clones are appearing, and dzone aims to be digg for developers. Nice drilldowns for specific areas with their own rss feeds. – you can get ruby (actually rails, but is anyone doing non-rails ruby? If they broke them out, the ruby category’d be empty), java, usability. Looks well-done and a good resource. No Library 2.0, though.
