posts brought to you by the category “ruby”

Das eez kaput! Sometime around 2002 I spaced the entire database table that mapped individual entries to categories. Such is life. What follows is a random sampling of entries that were associated with the category. Over time, the entries will be updated and then it will be even more confusing. Wander around, though, it's still a fun way to find stuff.

Libby Miller & Martin Poulter : Easy Image Annotation for the Semantic Web

see also : Managing Digital Photographs with RDF/N3 . This is not just a draft version, but an incomplete draft version. I started it in the airport in August and don't expect to continue working on it again until November, at the earliest. But you may enjoy it even though most of the content is about why RDF/XML sucks and N3 doesn't.

I used to think that there was no fashion faux-pas worse than the pant-skirt.

But then, on my way about town yesterday, my senses were assaulted by some guy,
doing his best I'm walking in slow motion so you can better appreciate the fluttering of my unbuttoned pirate-shirt imitation, decked out in a matching pin-striped kilt-pant outfit. I had to look away. Meanwhile, can someone please explain where this Pat Benetar meme started and tell me when it will end? I wish it weren't true but I recently had the pleasure of watching as people I respect, and care for, reminisced fondly about and then practiced their whoa-oh-oh-whoa-oh shoulder swags. So wrong. Just so oh-oh-whoa-oh-oh-whoa wrong.

Jeroen Bekaert has restarted a thread about "URIrefs and granularity"

on the www-rdf-interest list. This is of value to me because it's the first time I've been able to find any kind of discussion about whether, and how, RDF plays nicely with things like XInclude. The participants are focussing on on XPointer, specifically, but I'll take what I can get at this point.

With truths like these, who needs lies?

In war, it's appropriate for the media to serve as watchdogs, but you should not walk into a situation being a skeptic, he says in an interview. Reporters shouldn't be digging for dirt or even independently probing for facts, in his view. If something bad happens, it's the military's job to investigate, Long says, not the media's.

Our job is to provide the truth and provide context. He fires up his stogie. He puffs. The truth will set you free.

Me : Eatdrinkfeelgood Markup Language 1.1b2

I think this is finalized for 1.1 but I'll wait until I finish the 1.1-to-xhtml stylesheet before blessing it; I will also bless the 1.0-to-1.1 stylesheet at the same time. After that I'll write a 1.1-to-indexcard-fo stylesheet and consider making version 1.2 RDF-friendly , mostly because I think directed graphs of recipes might be pretty to look at. see also : docs and changes

Radio Crankypants #13-15

13) This would effectively turn RU into a desktop Blogger (only) application , complete with archives. 14) This is untested but... should import an entire Movable Type weblog in to Radio. 15) I was asked if I thought the MT hack, just mentioned, would work equally well for slurping a Blogger blog in the absence of a getAllPosts () method. The answer is :

No, it wouldn't. This is only a MT hack and it was a fluke involving auto-vivification of hash keys in Perl. The code was written to follow the spec.

The only way to get an entire Blogger blog using the API is fraught with danger; basically you have to get 20 recent posts (that's the upper limit), store them somewhere safe, delete them all from Blogger and start over again.

The process for importing into MT involves formatting the blog in a manner that lends itself to scraping and then you set your posts per page to something outrageous like 1000+

That said, the easiest way to import a Blogger blog into RU would be to format the templates as XML , set the page limit to <insert outrageous number> and rebuild your static files. Then you could slurp the file and parse it in Radio, saving everything to a table, like this :




local (server="yerhost.com")



local (path="/path/to/bigfile.xml")



xmlText = tcp.httpClient(server:server,path:path)







xmlBody = string.httpResultSplit(xmlText)







xml.compile(xmlBody,@workspace.bloggerData)




This approach is not only untested but will also require some additional processing on your part to finish populating the Radio CMS. That's the bad news. The good news is that your entire Blogger blog should now be a table in the object database and Radio/Frontier is rigged to the eyeballs for doing ODB stuff.

No one asked, but since I'm already having a bad day

I would just like to say that Radiohead have got to be one of the worst bands to ever grace the musical landscape. Frankly, they come pretty close to giving the whole concept of music a bad name. It's like listening to the soundtrack to 372, le matin played at 15RPM with squeaky chalk being dragged across a blackboard in the background. A worthy successor to the loathesome drivel that The Smiths wrought on the world...

Me : Apache::XBEL.pm example redux

So, it only took something silly like six months but I finally got a working example of Apache::XBEL.pm online. warning: you'll want a 5.0+ browser for this, kids. One of the things I'd like to do next, I write an as_XBEL widget for Simon Kittle's Text::Outline module so you can feed any old outline document and have exciting, foofy renderings complete with breadcrumbs and unique web "pages" for each node. The example linked to here was created with a very simple Perl script (included with the package) that slurps a variety of RSS feeds and generates an XBEL document. It would be trivial to turn the script into a mod_perl handler itself and have it filter the results to Apache::XBEL and, lo, YA-aggregator is born! Or you could just use your bookmarks ...

The dict-ified dictionary.com word of the day is interregnum

| source : web1913 | Interregnum \In`ter*reg"num\, n.; pl. {Interregnums}. [L., fr. inter between + regnum dominion, reign. See {Reign}, and cf. {Interreign}.] 1. The time during which a throne is vacant between the death or abdication of a sovereign and the accession of his successor. 2. Any period during which, for any cause, the executive branch of a government is suspended or interrupted. | source : wn | interregnum n : the time between two reigns, governments, etc. | source : devils | INTERREGNUM, n. The period during which a monarchical country is governed by a warm spot on the cushion of the throne. The experiment of letting the spot grow cold has commonly been attended by most unhappy results from the zeal of many worthy persons to make it warm again. The word of the day is not really interregnum, but dictionary.com is spewing compound words again, and I came across my word, today, in the book I am reading.

The Globe and Mail on "Renaissance Man" Paul Greenlaugh

Mr. Greenlaugh is the new president of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design , although the article seems to spend more time reliving the glory days of Garry Kennedy. Some items not mentioned in the article : During the last "official" president's tenure it was as much the students as the faculty that drove her away. Whether this was a good thing or not is another story; one thing is sure, she had *no* idea how to talk to twenty year old art students full of piss and vinegar. Eric Fischl is still hated and generously slagged by the painting faculty. The story goes that Garry Kennedy managed to secure the current location after making a very convincing argument that the school should, in fact, be housed on an old aircraft carrier that was then anchored in the harbour. The guy who ran the print shop and printed the "I will not make any boring art" print now does now does all his work on the web and is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He is also the guy who saved this print when, after a almost two months of work and a second all-nighter of etching, I discovered that I hadn't grained the biggest stone in the department evenly.

I pity the young children of parents who read this...

"I tell the kids that if they're lucky enough to win, I will take full credit, and Mr. Shapiro will take full credit, and the principal and the district superintendent will take credit, and the Board of Ed and the borough president will take credit, and their parents will take credit. And whatever is left over is theirs." And maybe that's enough for the kids, but it is still a fucked up way to approach your life and your relations with others.

M.J. Milroy on bathroom hackers

"The way I see it, it's simple. As a student taking a piss, I'm bombarded by ads. My environment affects me and I have a responsibility to respond to that."

Philip E. Agre : The architecture of identity, Embedding privacy in market institutions

"[This] article considers the ideas about human identity that have been implicit in the development of economics and computer science. The two fields have evolved along parallel tracks, starting with an assumption of perfect transparency and moving toward a more sophisticated appreciation of individuals' private informational states. Progress in the analysis and resolution of privacy problems will require that this evolution be taken seriously and continued."

Eye : Build your own toboggan

"Our sensible friend Julia points out that a toboggan's front must be curved, or else it will dig into the snow and flip its passengers head over heels. Ouch. She's right. Luckily, I have the fluted lid on a big plastic garbage pail, hanging around our kitchen unused. A few pieces of duct tape later, and the toboggan has a curved front." mmmmm... duct tape .

Worldtime.org

"The Earth is shown as a globe (so-called orthographic projection). You can, among other things, rotate the globe, zoom it and display national borders. By default, you will see the daylight, twilight and night zones. To be precise, the twilight zone shown in the maps is the so-called nautical twilight zone, i.e. the zone in which the sun is not more than 12 degrees below the horizon."

NY Times on the Mother Jones of Silicon Valley

"Why do I spend so much time in the heart of this new economy working with unions to build a voice for working people?" she said. "It has everything to do with whether we can revitalize an institution that so many people in this country depend on. It's the only vehicle in this country that can balance the political landscape."

Mr. Purple on The Network

"In effect, he was suggesting that the Web could grow self-aware, live off human fetuses, and replace our very reality with a precise fabrication." Dig, if you will, the picture.

perl.com has redesigned their website

It's very blue and the type is very small (in that Mac-ish sort of way) but it does seem to make more sense than it used to. They also have a cool <a href = "http://www.perl.com/pub/universal/pcb/solution.html">Recipe of the Day</a> feature. mmmmm....perl.

Patricia Leigh Brown on truck stops :

"In a design trend as yet unheralded by Architectural Digest, a new building type has been born, one that seeks to revive "the wow factor," as Westlake calls it, that dazzled motorists of the '50s before television advertising and computer reservations took over."

Peter Wheeland : From anglophone to vibraphone

"Vibraphone: a person who speaks two or more languages and who believes each language provides significant social, cultural and intellectual enrichment. When vibraphones see a public sign in their second or third or fourth language, if they can't understand it, they rejoice in the opportunity to add the new words or phrases to their vocabulary. They are incapable of seeing other languages as threats, only as opportunities to expand their understanding of their neighbours and the world around them."
