Wired's Star Trek's 100 Crew Members Ranked (With links)

Wired thought they would rile people up by ranking Star Trek characters. But, they just provided a list. No links with context or further info. So I've done that. Mainly I wanted to fiddle with a heroku app and learn Bootstrap. Please enjoy my really cruddy looking "app." I want to continue to work on it until it looks nice. Most of the links work. I may have missed one or two. It's an ongoing journey.

Pogoapp: PaaS hosting startup by a couple Mefites

We started out as Rails developers trying to script capistrano deployments and somehow ended up hacking together a full platform-as-a-service system, run on dedicated servers, with S3-compatible distributed storage and a REST API/build process that's mostly heroku-compatible (i.e. Procfiles and buildpacks and one-time-processes). We've got support for Ruby 1.9.3 and 2.0 preview including Rails, node.js/CoffeeScript, python, php, etc etc. [more inside]

A markovian text generator, tweeting away, starting with the text, "As Gregor Samsa awoke ...". Code can be found at https://github.com/willf/microsoft_ngram (in the examples directory). Enjoy such gems as "As Gregor Samsa awoke one morning from uneasy dreams he found himself in charge of our financial system," "Gregor Samsa awokeā€¦to find himself transformed into an enormous social mechanism for the centralisation of the New Zealand parliament," and "Gregor Samsa awoke from a night of clubbing former actress Lindsay Lohan."
