In case you haven’t heard:
GitHub’s production database was accidentally dropped. Oops. But it is good that fault was admitted and there is something that is being done about it.
So I recently presented an introduction to Haml. Here’s the slides if you’re interested (6 MB, .pptx):

As could be predicted, there was a somber overtone to last night’s SF New Tech meetup at Mighty. A lot of people are looking for work. The section at the end of the evening, the 60-second spots, had a mix of people announcing they were looking for work and a couple who were indeed hiring.
I did have a good couple of conversations with other entrepreneurs though. Lots of people with ideas that are actually realistic, implementable, and profitable! I spoke with one guy about crowdsourcing QA help, and another guy about his new idea he wants to launch but is just getting started. Then there were some great presentations.
