ThinkLinkr, another pretty slick web-based outliner.
The Smart Disorganized reboot is still in progress …. Today, a sad story about GeekWeaver. A couple of weeks ago I needed to revamp Gbloink!’s web presence. Quickly. And, I was in no position to do it in GW. So I fired up a copy of WordPress and made : Gbloink! I also needed a […]
XHP actually looks pretty cool. On the surface, it’s just a cleaned up PHP. But the cleaning up (putting XML into the language) actually gives it some of the character I was hoping for in GeekWeaver.
A quick thought … working with a lot of Django and Pinax at the moment, I’m seeing a lot of use of Python’s varargs. Functions that just take *argv, **kwargs I find I don’t like this. I want to see argument lists as explicit as possible. I feel uncomfortable and a bit lost. I feel […]
Phil Windley on creating your own Domain Specific Language.
Dave Winer’s back on the Windows OPML Editor … which is great for me and for GeekWeaver (‘cos I don’t have a Mac and there’s no Linux port yet.) Meanwhile … anyone know other decent OPML editors? I’d be particularly interested in ones that run in the browser.

What does this software mean? In this series I’ll start to make some specific notes towards that. Here’s the first. SdiDesk is wiki : a network of […]
Sometimes you need to take a step back from a problem, to see the forest for the trees. GeekWeaver was being held up by something that seemed a rather complicated knot; one that I’ve wrestled with a number of times but never really untangled to my satisfaction. So last night I decided to restart with […]
I’m way too busy now … but I’m having some kicking ideas about my own grandiose bid to improve programming … … think GeekWeaver in an SdiDesk-alike editor (obviously). Then imagine that *everything* is a template. That’s the way that GeekWeaver is already going. Everything is a template (ie. has named slots that can be […]
And I thought I was ambitious, trying to write a programming language! My friend Oli has decided to reinvent programming as we know it. Details are still trickling out via his web-site : Semantic Programming. And I’m in frenzied skype conversation with him, trying to figure out what it’s all about. In outline, it starts […]
