Btw I just put something up online that I spent a couple of evenings in my couch putting together: it’s a website where you can track any numerical data on the web. Want to know how many Twitter followers you have? Temperature in NYC? Go to and start tracking it.

Actually was just a domain name I had lying around for something else, but it turned out to fit pretty well.

I’m not a web developer but sometimes it’s nice to see how easy doing complex web apps has become. I put together something in a few afternoons using Tornado, Bootstrap, etc – something that would have taken weeks a few years ago.
