Today was a good day. I made absolutely no progress on my research and did not otherwise move myself any closer to graduation. But, today, that is ok , because, today, I was not actually trying to do either. Today, frustration at delays from a collaborator, burning curiosity, and the need to devise a Father's Day present, practically forced me to take the day and play with the Google App Engine. Apologies to my supervisor..
- In fact, Python is actually pretty cool, despite having the rather surprising "feature" of interpreting the amount of indentation in the code as having meaning (that was a surprise, but easily adapted to)
- I was already pretty convinced from the videos of the Google developer's meeting, but now its really just bleedingly obvious that this is how the next generation of web application is going to be born
