I Miss Staging — Postlight — Digital product studio
"This is how we used to develop in the last decade, hitting reload on different browsers on different operating systems and adding special cases to our code until everything looked and worked okay. Eventually a consistent platform emerged." Yup. Yet another downside of the future-is-services: it's also a mess, and everyone just seems to be _coping_ rather than offering alternatives.

gemcutter | awesome gem hosting
"Gemcutter is the next generation of gem hosting for the Ruby community. Instantly publish your gems and install them. Use the API to interact and find out more information about available gems. Become a contributor and enhance the site with your own changes." Apparently this is the next big thing, post-github not serving gems. Let's chase this trend for a bit.

Gem Building is Defunct - GitHub
"’s been a week and we’ve decided to not bring back the gem builder. It was a fun experiment but Jeweler and Gemcutter combined make it ridiculously simple to publish a gem. The gem builder use case (fork a project, make a change, publish a gem, install it) is now easier than ever using these tools." Which is all very nice, but a bit of a PITA for anyone who'd been depending on this. Still: will serve for another year.

Process Perfection
"The bottom line is, there are laws on the books in the EU that stand in direct conflict with the needs of Google's architecture, and no amount of hand waving will make that fact go away." Smart artcile about the legal issues of cloud computing.

SwitchPipe - Process Manager and Proxy for Rapid Web App Deployment
"SwitchPipe is a proof of concept "Web application server" or, more accurately, a Web application process manager and request proxy." Wow. Peter Cooper comes good on his "RBoss" concept. Could be interesting to see if there's mileage in this.
