I hadn't seen Will Gozer's Trendalicious, “a near real-time view of website popularity trends as reflected by the del.icio.us social bookmarking service. All URLs that have been posted by a minimum of two people in the past sixty minutes are displayed, ranked by the total number of recent posts.”
Trendalicious, like Will's Cafespot site, is powered by Allegro Common Lisp.
Will is interviewed by eHub:
The whole project came together very quickly, and exactly as planned. It only took a month and a half to launch the first version, and new changes are very easy to implement and deploy. CafeSpot is probably the best web application I have built so far
And I hadn't see his Cafespot development blog before, either.
It warms my heart to see people using Lisp to create useful applications that participate in our contemporary web ecology.Posted by jjwiseman at October 20, 2005 12:55 PM
