A Ruby Lens

Seth Godin is one of my favorite reads on the internet – he’s entertaining, insightful, and I usually learn something. He’s been cooking up Squidoo for the last little while, and since it was recently released, I figured I’d give it a whirl. Drum roll, please:

A Ruby Reader

Check it out and let me know what you think about the content. Five years in the Ruby community has exposed me to a lot of stuff, and I’ve tried to distill some of the best stuff down to a truly useful jumping off place. It’s a bit newbie slanted at this point – I’d like to follow it up at some point with a lens on great Ruby blogs, but we’ll see how this one does first.

As far as Squidoo itself goes, I think they need a bit less software – it’s a great concept, with some great execution, but there’s just too many options, too many actions, too much Ajax, etc. They are still in “beta” (whatever that means these days), so I’ll cut ‘em some slack on the fact that Safari doesn’t seem to work well with the service.

Do check out Squidoo, and do check out the Ruby Reader. I look forward to hearing what you think.
