Hi all,
I've been working on something: http://scaggregator.appspot.com/
It's basically an aggregator of the blogs of people who seem connected
to the Software Craftsmanship movement in some way.

If you've seen:
http://blogs.thoughtworks.com/
http://planet.intertwingly.net/
http://planet.apache.org/
then you already understand the idea. It's basically an easy way to
see what everybody's doing.

Usually I'd wait until this was actually working properly before
telling people about it. But a conversation with Douglas Squirrel
yesterday inspired me to announce it early so you can watch me learn
in public. Or perhaps help out.

The code's here: http://github.com/adewale/streamer and it's in Python
and runs on AppEngine.
It currently has lots of missing features and bugs:
- It doesn't handle duplicates so when someone updates their blog
you'll get duplicates
- I've only just got to the stage where I've found an approach to
writing tests on AppEngine that makes sense.
- I barely understand Git and Github
- It doesn't have an Atom feed to subscribe to.
Apart from that it actually works.

Patches or pull requests are encouraged. Start here:
http://github.com/adewale/streamer/blob/master/TODO if you feel brave.

Done.
Being on this mailing list is enough to say that your blog is appropriate.

Re: Developers, programmers, or computer scientists and our heritage as craftsmen.

Finally, I get to reply to your question. From my perspective I truly believe 
that developer, programmer, computer scientist, engineer, etc. are all 
metaphors. The underlying model of what we do varies to some extent. For 
example, the engineering model gives us the principle of trade-off decisions 
being made each day on our projects. These models help our brain to form 
clusters of knowledge where appropriate and add to our understanding.

But these simplified models are never complete, so just focussing on one of the 
three mentioned aspects is not enough. Just as you said, you see yourself in 
all three categories is also true for me. At times I notice a preference on the 
programmer or the developer, sometimes on the scientific approach. Recently I 
was working on an article about this topic, which still needs some more work. 
It's important to understand that these models are useful at times, as well as 
useless at other times. They give a focussed view on some problem you may 
experience, but not a thorough one.

Kind regards
Markus Gaertner

Doc Norton, I'm enjoying your blog. Not so much the AT&T rant, but the articles on Metrics and Harmonic Means were interesting.

Being on this mailing list is enough to say that your blog is appropriate.

Adewale, That's a brave statement! Feel free to add my feed http://feeds.feedburner.com/scrumology if you still feel that way. 

Thanks!
