This week youtube bought the rights to broadcast Indian cricket. This could be a very big deal.
There’s continued to be a stream of Rails 3 focussed blog entries. JosÃ© Valim has a good round up of links regarding generators in Rails 3 – it looks like they and templates (now merged) could be much more useful than they have been in the past. There’s also a nice detailed walk through the changes to the stack in Rails 3 on omgbloglol.com. Over on rails-core there’s been some discussion of how things stand with gem plugins in Rails 3, and Yehuda Katz has continued his excellent exploration of Rails 3 with a walk-through the new Railties approach.
