There has been many interesting articles, products and discussions on the web in the past week and I have been cutting and pasting them into this blog entry. Seeing as they don’t seem to be stopping perhaps time to post them up.

The Cost of Bootstrapping Your App: The Figures Behind DropSend (part one) – Signal vs. Noise (by 37signals). Ryan Carson offering interesting information as usual.
Why Ruby, I am trying to learn python at the moment I am inclined to agree with this article – Ctrl-C from the web formating problems and the lack of decent reference is not making it as easy as it should be.
Pixoh – Edit pictures online before putting them in flickr or the new competitors that are coming out.
“Identity Production in a Networked Culture: Why Youth Heart MySpace – A fantastic look at why MySpace is proving so popular particularly with the under 20s. Of course there are up and coming spaces that seemed to be doing very well as well. Perhaps a new app will come out soon that will stitch them together.
