Guido van Rossum started a weblog

Mon, 05 May 2003 17:24:42 GMT

Guido van Rossum (Python creator) started a weblog, at Artima. He's in good company there: Ward Cunningham , Frank Sommers, Bill Venners, Jim Waldo.

I like Bill Venners and I'm glad that Artima starts hosting weblogs for programming stars.

Got my powerbook: a few mac links

Just got my Powerbook today. Still blogging on the old Dell. A few mac links that can come in handy tomorrow:

Jabber or JXTA. [Welcome to the real world]

Don't know why Jabber has more adoption in the open source world than JXTA. Maybe because of the initial application: both are great infrastructures, but Jabber shipped with a useful IM client and server, while JXTA just shipped a useless sample application that is a shell.

Link: AOP in Python

Tue, 29 Apr 2003 10:29:56 GMT

David Mertz wrote A Primer on Python Metaclass Programming Metaclass Programming allows you to do AOP in Python.

This article seems to be a rehash of his february DeveloperWorks article Metaclass programming in Python

There's also a Python AOP module for Zope, called Transwarp that exploits these techniques.

Link: Notes from the Chandler Demo

Tue, 29 Apr 2003 10:17:20 GMT

Notes from the Chandler Demo is an excellent introduction to Chandler. I tried their release 0.1 and while rough it is very promising. The Notes explain why the platform they build is promising. Based on wxWindows, Python, RDF and jabber, the architecture looks great and very flexible.

I'm just disappointed that they did not chose to implement this on top of Mozilla, which I think had already all the required platform features. I guess that performance, the choice to have native widgets, and the decision to use Python is what triggered their choice.

It's a great opportunity for me to give a try to my new abilities in Python, which I begun to learn 2 months ago and find a very exciting language.

They use Twiki for their wiki site: a very tasteful choice shall I say :-)

Re: Discussions about Blogshares

Tue, 29 Apr 2003 10:06:20 GMT

There's an interesting conversation going on about Blogshares.

Joi has a Chat with Seyed, creator of Blogshares, and Pierre Omidyar gives his own thoughts bout it in Joi on Blogshares.

I don't know have a definite point of view about this experiment yet: I think that the sociology of influence games warrant a much more complex regulation system than a market, but at the same time as Omidyar points out, this may lead to some interesting results in the area of "collaborative, value-creating  blogs".

An example of analysis of influence games and their complexity is Pierre Bourdieu's excellent The Rules of Art: Genesis and Structure of the Literary Field, where he analyzes the autonomization of the literary field, led by Flaubert in the 19th century. See and to get an idea of the content.

Clearly a simple market mechanism will not be a good enough mechanism to regulate the complex relationships that the actors are involved in the literary or scientific field.

Welcome Anders

My ex-Netscape colleague Anders Eriksson started a java blog (I just discovered it on javablog).

Welcome Anders !

Your RSS is valid but Radio cannot understand it. Maybe because it is RSS 1.0. I need to switch to a more tolerant RSS reader.
