Following the App Engine launch yesterday, Google published 5 of sample applications which use App Engine.
One of them is HuddleChat, a nice web-based chat room client. It’s a simple project for simple demo.
Unfortunately, HuddleChat is taken down today.
It’s all because 37Signals told ReadWriteWeb that Google rip-off their Campfire application. Lame.
Dude, seriously, how many variations can you come up for chat client? Isn’t this a bit ridiculous?

Latest Update (01/19/2008):
The YouTube Video is back!
Lame, lame, triple lame! Richter Scales, the guy behind this super awesome video is being threaten by a photographer who claimed that she wasn’t getting paid for Lane Hartwell picture.
Anyway… the video I’m displaying right now is now hosted via Daily Motion.
A tribute to Web 2.0 “growth”.

This is another not so new social networking site, but its idea is somehow refreshing and original.
- There are a lot of fashion blogs/magazines…
- There are a lot of gossip blogs…
- There are a lot of social network sites…
But there’s not a whole lot of those three combined in 1 site. It definitely has high advertisement values.
Detailed conversation about Popsugar’s technical specs & Drupal tips is recorded here.
Granted that Drupal source code is somewhat funky, along with its hook architecture, but it is well known to be flexible and capable to withstand medium-sized traffic.

For readers and all fellow developers: Finding documentation has become less of a pain. Thanks to Gotapi.
Currently they have:
- C/C++ libraries.
- Ruby on Rails
- Python (Reading from blog.gotapi, Python is 1 of the first documentation)
- and much more…
I highly recommend readers to go check Gotapi. RTFM has just gotten easier.

I knew sooner or later someone would have going to make this: geni.com
It’s ajax family tree!!!
Just to inform readers, I attempted to create family social network called bbster (pronounce: baby-ster) last year, in which the main feature is AJAX family tree.
The project failed half way because divorce made re-drawing the family tree rather difficult. Thus, I wonder how geni would handle divorce in their family tree. I was using cakePHP as the project’s framework.
Wow, I knew that someone would thought of it sooner or later, but not this soon.
Congratulation Geni team!
Obvious glaring fact that I overlook, Geni.com use Flash as opposed to AJAX. Thanks to Scott (smhill) for pointing it out.

besides tesla motors of course.
What is Joost:
from Wikipedia – “Joost (IPA pronunciation: [dʒuːst] ‘juiced’) is a system for distributing TV shows and other forms of video over the Web using peer-to-peer TV technology, created by Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis (founders of Skype and Kazaa)“.
They are not another YouTube. It’s a cool way of distributing hi-quality videos online without old-media up-on-your-butt. In a way they are the new distributor, but hey, if Joost is executing it well… Why not?
