I really enjoy Uche Ogbuji's writing. He has a way of addressing a topic that reminds me of conversations I would have with colleagues while I sipped a refreshing adult beverage in some exotic locale during my time as an architect for developer relations. For me, exploring new technology is a pleasure. I love it when I walk away from one of these conversations saying to myself "Oooooh! I need to try that." That's how I feel when I work with Uche's articles.
This week, Uche is talking about PubSubHubbub, or PuSH. Never heard of it? Here's a quick video:
Look interesting? Now get your hands on it and play by reading Uche's article: "Hacking PubSubHubbub". In this case, Uche is taking back the word "hack"– which I dearly love– and making it about exploring and making things, not breaking things.
I downloaded the Mint DVD yesterday but have not fired it up. I'm suspecting that I will like it based on what I've read, which means I have to do a full system backup and all that, so it will likely be a day or few before I am fully on the other side of it. However, I'm hoping to test out the live-boot today and try a few things. I have some article work to do, including getting some things scheduled with Troy, who has been very patient with me. I'll keep you posted on my progress.
If anyone reading this is already using Mint, I'd be interested in your feedback on it. You can write it here or put a new blog entry in the Real World Linux group. I just created the group and haven't had a chance to get much going there. If you post now you'll get the first entry!
