I saw this ad in my gmail, and found it pretty funny. Swivel is a startup that is trying to be the “YouTube of Data”. What they’re doing is pretty neat, esp if they can get the correlation of data down. I wasn’t aware that they were using Rails, but perhaps they’re only using it as a front end, and have some Java backend processing.
While we’re at trivialities, you might as well read about “Mel the Programmer.” Though Mel’s a real person, this is what legends are made of.
More substance next time.
