Bespin: An extensible IDE living in the cloud

If you ask me, Mozilla couldn’t have picked a better name for their new experimental web-based IDE.

The idea behind Bespin is also pretty cool.  Since most web projects don’t require a huge codebase, why not use a simple IDE in the cloud?

The project has a long way to go to be sure, but I’d say it’s off to a great start. Try it out for youreslf at

Dev Patel takes on Zuko

Slumdog Millionare star Dev Patel has replaced Jesse McCartney (yes, the singer) in the role of Prince Zuko in M. Night’s upcoming The Last Airbender film adaptation.

Dev Patel: Future firebending prince

Talk about great news! I still think Slumdog Millionare was an overhyped film, but I can appreciate this guys acting skill. I think he’ll bring a lot to the Avatar films.

Here’s the kicker: he also happens to be a black belt and 2004 World Championship bronze medalist in Tae Kwon Do.

Yes, things are looking good for this project.
