This is not a measure of success, but it is an indicator of how interested people are in the code behind each of these technologies. Overtaking Rails will represent a tipping point in what developers are interested in experimenting with.

Been loving working with Backbone.js. It's lightweight but super flexible and it feels good to have some structure in my large-scale js app. There are some good tutorials out there but it's a steep initial curve. I'll point to good tuts and docs if anyone is interested.

Hey, does anybody know some good online resources for Chromebook hacking? I just got hold of a Cr-48. It came in developer mode (which is different how?) and I've figured out how to get a terminal open on its own screen which is pretty slick.

But I want to get some compilers on there and git and node and shit.

Pointers? Thanks!

To continue my Exclusive-Web/FB-fealty rant, in all its incoherence...

Facebook is becoming like a Monsanto (or something...). Everyone seems to see them as their only way to compete so they get in bed with the big, ugly guy. They have little pride or courage to go it alone. And for players offering free services/content I can see the allure.

So when you start using services that are free you have to weigh the pros and cons. With sites like Facebook I keep a little distance because I know how they feel about their user's privacy and data.

But when I haven't even gotten a taste of some new player's free service and they want me to create a Facebook account, that stinks. I don't want to have to give you all the data that Facebook has stored about me just to sign up for your Exclusive-Web wait list.

In the way that I'm willing to pay a premium to eat at a nice restaurant instead of McDonald's, maybe I'll start loosening up and shell out money for services on the internet that i can trust.

This may usher in a real traction in the subscription web model. That is, if anyone is courageous enough to go it without Facebook..

Spotify was one of the first services that I was happy to shell out a monthly subscription to. And now they've gone and forced even new paying customers to sign up via Facebook account. Why couldn't this have been optional? 90% of the people are going to connect via Facebook anyway, but those other 10% would have loved the option of not. Did Facebook coerce them into it or did they roll over for the money?

Things are changing. What do you think? Are you worried? Am I over-reacting?
