Recent gems

When I first bought Conrad Cork's the New Guide to Harmony with LEGO bricks, I was horrified to learn that I was expected to find literally hundreds of tracks. I had been dimly aware of Spotify, but it's great.

Yesterday, through a link in Hacker News I think, I discovered SciRuby. That is a project that could easily eat up all my spare time. I have oddly ambivalent views towards Python and Ruby. Like Ash in Alien, I admire Ruby's OO purity, whereas Python just works, in a DWIM kind of way - it's so good, it's boring!
