  1. Weeknotes: Dogsheep

    Having spent a lot of time writing my own tools to save copies of my data from third-party services, I like what Simon Willison’s doing here.

  2. Simon Willison on Twitter

    “Anyone know of a web hosting provider where I can pay a lump sum of money to host a file at a reliable URL essentially forever? Is this even remotely feasible?” Lots of thoughts.

  3. Building a combined stream of recent additions using the Django ORM

    Very handy. I’ve tried a couple of laborious ways of doing the same in the past, probably before `.union()` appeared.

    Shows you how to fix “broken” encoded text using python.

  5. google-map-marker-with-shadow.js — Gist

    “Here’s how to add a coloured marker to a Google Map with a shadow in the right place.” The marker’s dynamically generated using the Google Charts API.

  6. Philgyford’s mytweets at master - GitHub

    I updated Simon Willison’s “Script for saving a JSON archive of your tweets”, which Blech and others have added to since, to use OAuth.

  7. Crowdsourced document analysis and MP expenses

    About writing the Guardian’s site that lets people examine MPs’ expenses. Especially good on the lessons learned from the first version, and how they improved for the second.

  8. Simonw’s mytweets at master - GitHub

    “Script for saving a JSON archive of your tweets.” I’m already archiving mine another way, but a handy thing nonetheless.

  9. Simonw’s geocoders at master - GitHub

    Python “code for accessing various geocoding web services with an ultra simple API”. Sounds good.


    Awesome little app by Simon Willison that shows you places near you from Wikipedia, using Yahoo! Fire Eagle. Makes me want an iPhone.

  11. Extenuating Circumstances – SXSW 2008: Creative Collaboration: Building Web Apps Together

    Good notes on a SXSW panel. I wonder where I’d fit in, but also wonder why I’m doing all this theatre nonsense when reading stuff like this makes me so excited.

  12. Get Lat Lon - find the latitude and longitude of a point on a map

    Wonderfully simple Google Maps tool by Simon Willison for doing what it says. Very handy for me for Pepys’ Diary.

    What it says, by Simon Willison. For next time I delve into jQuery. (via Yoz and Blech)

  14. Simon Willison: Graphing requests with Tamper Data

    Very nice thing found by Simon - a graph showing when elements of a webpage load, and how long they take. (via Daring Fireball)
