Jeff Atwood: When In Doubt, Make It Public

Jeff Atwood wrote a funny (and very true) article about what’s new or not so new in these Web 2.0 days. I especially had to laugh at the idea that “new” ideas on the net are merely replicas of old UNIX tools introduced by Marc Hedlund.

talk, finger ICQ
LISTSERV DejaNews
ls Yahoo! directory
find, grep Google
rn Bloglines
pine Google Mail
mount Amazon S3
bash Yahoo! Pipes
wall Twitter

Coda – a web dvelopment IDE

Panic today announced a great new application called Coda.
It is a fully integrated web development IDE consisting of several parts.

  1. A licensed SubEthaEdit (my absolute favourite) as text editor
  2. Their awesome Transmit as integrated tool to transfer files back and forth
  3. A dedicated CSS editor
  4. Reference Books for HTML, CSS, JavaScript and PHP. Fully searchable and integrated with the app
  5. A Terminal Application for the occasional SQL work or tailing a logfile

This app looks really promising, I can’t wait to try it out and see if it suits my workflow.
