The current workaround seems to be either moving back ...

Hudson Radiator View

Hudson Radiator View
This is cool – recently enabled a Radiator view on Hudson, which gives you a quick at-a-glance build status array for display as extreme feedback on a wall or chart — seems particularly useful for distributed or distance teams if you’re willing to plug in a couple extra monitors to give them a huddle-room feel.

CoolIris nee Piclens

Just updated their Safari plugin – seems to work great in Safari 4.0 Beta. Also added a nifty embedded flash viewer that has lots of the same visualizations and whatnot. This is pretty cool – I may have to replace my default Flickr photo bit with this…

Dominos Gets Actionable Intelligence

Dominos Gets Actionable Intelligence
So I was ordering a pizza today from Dominos (been a while, but being car-less around lunch tends to limit options) and noticed that they have just about the coolest web feedback system for an order I’ve seen: So, not only can I see an estimated delivery time, but if I leave the browser open ...

The self-replicating rapid prototyper, or “RepRap,” could have dramatic effects on people in developing countries. (Via The Pirates Dilemma.) The thought of being able to take any ...

SakaiCon Recap

Sitting on a flight, returning from the Sakai conference — still trying to take everything in. There’ll probably be more musing on the significance of specific items coming up, but things that struck me enough to want to brain dump were: * There was wide consensus during the planning sessions that there’s a desire to ...

Facebook Platform - In-road to HE Legitimacy?
http://developers.facebook.com/index.php Facebook has once again made it the coolest platform ever by opening their API further, and most importantly supporting sessions that don’t expire every 24 hours. There’s been a lot of talk on the web about this helping them to monetize Facebook’s user base through commerce partnerships. I think that’s true, but I also ...
