[Comments] (4) World Famous Ultra Gleeper: So what did I find out today but that the Ultra Gleeper, which still needs to be rejiggered so it's easier to install, is famous! It's mentioned in an article on CodeCon and Demo on B1 of today's Wall Street Journal (though they devalued it to a mere "Gleeper").

And when I tried a Google News search to see if Google had some sneaky deal with the WSJ such that I could use it to link through their subscription firewall (answer: nope), I discovered that the Ultra Gleeper got a much more gushing treatment in Red Herring, in an interview with Christian Leybold, a VC whose company sponsored the "underground convergence of algorithmic minds". Doesn't this mean I get a free round of funding?

[Comments] (12) : Hey, how are you doing? The thing I've been working on for the past month is a chapter for a book. The book's about beginning programming in Python, and the chapter's about web applications and web services. I tried to write the chapter that would have turned me into a super-prescient web application genius if I'd read it in 1997, when I first started writing CGIs. Actually, most of my writing is messages to myself that come far too late to help me, but might help you.

So (the first draft of) that's done, and now I have to deal with all the personal stuff that's been piling up, but maybe this could be a new, not-very-lucrative career for me. It was pretty fun to write, except for the deadline panic, and I was able to write a lot more than I thought I could.
