Gotta admit, this new Blogger blogroll sorted by freshness of update and showing the latest post headline is rather cool.

I made an update to Mind Traffic Control today which should speed it up a little … it’s working for me in my queue … but if anyone sees any error messages … scream.

Oh, also, your deferred list in the overview should be sorted.

And, of course, I’m not forgetting about Chris Dent’s TiddlyWeb either …. though it’s harder to track progress without a blog, eh, Chris? 🙂

Update: Doh! Chris reminds me there’s a Tiddlyweb Twitterfeed

Here’s something else that looks pretty cool. BuckyBase is a data-wiki where pages are like free-form records (dictionaries of key / value pairs) that can also be can be shown grouped into tabular form.

It’s fairly simple at the moment (another just-launched GAE experiment), but I can’t help thinking that in my “enterprisey” day-job I work with nothing but data which is structured like this : records that are less than normalized, sometimes viewed as separate pages, sometimes squashed into grids. Give it the ability to add a few extra-constraints, some kind of blank form definitions; hook it up to Google Visualization and let it embed Gadgets; add some more sophisticated querying … and you’ve got the heart of a small-business data-base application : Filemaker-as-a-service.

And if Google can ensure that Application Engine really is fast, powerful and secure enough to host serious applications, then it looks very promising as the new standard substrate for a whole ecology of this kind of wiki-derived tool.
