I am currently diving into C# and .NET in general so this comes as a pleasant addition to the tools and capabilities available.


On my last trip to San Francisco, Paul Betts was gushing about an unnamed cache store for .NET he was working on. Today he announced the release of Akavache on the GitHub blog. Packaged up for Nuget, one can only speculate what GitHub might be building that would need a client-side cache for Windows. Hmmm.

We should mention Akavache makes use of Reactive Extensions, a new .NET library for composing async, event-based programs that Phil Haack was so excited about on Episode 0.7.6. Check out the source on GitHub for installation and usage.

The new version of your favorite file upload library, Paperclip 3.0.0, has been released earlier today. We changed a lot of internals to make Paperclip better. These changes lay the groundwork for the shiny, new features that will come in the future.

Today, in a blog post, Google announced it will be shutting down Google Buzz in a few week’s time. Google says it will be shutting down Buzz and the Buzz API to focus on Google , where users will be able to see their existing Buzz content and download it using Google Takeout. We aspire to build great products that really change people’s lives, products they use two or three times a day. To succeed you need real focus and thought—thought about what you work on and, just as important, what you don’t work on. It’s why we recently decided to shut down some products, and turn others into features of existing products. -Bradley Horowitz, Vice President, Product at Google. In addition to Buzz, Google Labs site will shut down, and as previously announced, Boutiques.com and the former Like.com websites will be replaced by Google Product Search.

I haven’t blogged in a while but I love to go to my blog to remind myself of why I started writing in the first place, but most importantly why I can’t do without it.


See- the beauty of despair

Touch- my sorrow but with care

Hear- this nothingness, if you dare.



Words- spoken and blown away

Hearts- torn, bled and thrown away

Souls- taken and lost at bay.



The tree of Love has borne fruit
