    I don’t have anyone for this position, but I wanted to quickly note that I am loving Outside.in. I posted about it a few days ago on my blog at: http://www.andrewbaisley.co…I have been looking for a service like this for ages. Google News alerts just doesn’t cut it.

    I think that Twitter has proven that ROR doesn’t scale – my free advice to them is to re-write their application using native scalable techniques.
