Oliver just released his latest creation. A Mac OS X Dashboard Widget that displays the album covers of your latest played songs via Last.fm. What I love most is that, when you click on one of the cover pictures the Widget displays some more info about that particular song and also lets you send the song details to Twitter

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.

And make sure you also read the comments for some more funny ideas.
- A licensed SubEthaEdit (my absolute favourite) as text editor
- Their awesome Transmit as integrated tool to transfer files back and forth
- A dedicated CSS editor
- 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.
include('lastVenue.php');This script pulls all events for a specific venue from last.fm and lists them in a simple, CSS styleable unorderd list. The script is meant to be included into a webpage and thus features none of the other HTML markup to make it into a full document. It basically only echoes out a headline and a few list items. Oh yea, of course the script is Microformats enabled ;) Note: the AJAX loding functions got skipped, because I'm really tired right now. Maybe they'll show up in version 2.0 ...who knows? Demo
