I've been getting some flack about my Ruby-related posts showing up on Planet Python. On the one hand, I have never intended this to be a pure-Python blog. On the other hand, since most of my readers come from Planet Python, I surely don't want to upset them.
I work at two startups. One uses Python with Pylons. The other uses Ruby on Rails. This puts me squarely in both camps. In general, I try to code in and blog about as many technologies as I have time for. Hence, you'll often see posts about weirder things like Haskell, Erlang, Oz, etc.
I can understand how it would be frustrating for some people to read about Rails on Planet Python. In fact, I got kicked off of Planet Haskell because I spent too much time blogging about Python! Now, I could probably wax philosophic about the increasingly insular nature of programmers in our industry, but given how many times I've made fun of Java, it probably wouldn't do me any good ;)
If you have any advice, I'd love to hear it. I'd hate to create separate blogs, because all of these topics together are part of who I am and what I do. One of my heroes is Isaac Asimov, and that guy would write about anything! I see that there is a way to view just my Python posts: http://jjinux.blogspot.com/search/label/python. However, I don't see an atom feed for that. I've asked the guys on Planet Python for advice concerning this issue.
In the meantime:
If you have read my blog in the past, and you enjoy it, and you don't mind my occasional posts on weird things like Ruby, Oz, Haskell, etc., please consider subscribing to my blog directly: http://jjinux.blogspot.com/
Oh, and as usual, thanks for reading!
