Jorge Ben was really terrific during the 70s. Afro-Brazil!

It seems like people are beginning to embrace the aspects of PoEAA[1][2] that were initially ignored by the Rails community: Services[3], Presenters/Decorators[4], Data Mapper[5] (the pattern, not the Ruby library.) This probably coincides with a larger number of Rails applications growing beyond basic CRUD, at least I know that I have had the same thoughts over the last couple of months. Full circle, I guess.

Maildir is really, really clever. I have wanted to (ab)use it for simple and reliable (local) queues for a long time. Turns out somebody already wrote a Ruby library[1][2] for this. And apparently I contributed to it a year ago. Who would have known.

Skip through the first two-thirds of this blog post (the usual Ruby community fuzz) and you will find the reason I am still going strong with Ruby: the multitude of implementations, in particular JRuby and Rubinius and the renewed focus on parallelism with libraries such as Celluloid. As JRuby and Rubinius become increasingly predominant I expect more to follow.
Edit: Contrary to what I said here, José Valim is not stepping down from Rails core, he is merely on sabbatical. My bad. Lately I've been getting the feeling the Ruby community has gotten a bit em...

The Raspberry Pi's are on their way. I really can't wait to get my hands on one of those. For some reason I hadn't noticed they came with GPIO connectors[1] until today, but that has me really excited. Suddenly wiring up all kinds of peripherals is both cheap and easy[2].
