Twitter Problems

I just got “rate-limited” doing a search on Twitter for #RubyNation. This was the first time I’ve used Twitter in the past week because I’ve been busy with multiple projects. It’s also, by extension, the first and only search I’ve done in the past week. I have to say that either Twitter’s search is broken, or their algorithm for identifying people who need to be rate-limited is totally FUBAR.

Note: It turned out to be a widespread Twitter problem.

KeenerTech Changes

Inspired by RailsConf 2010, I’ve updated the site to support comments on all of the articles. I’ve also added a modest little Gallery page and a bunch of tweaks and minor re-factors.

Votridea.com Launches!

My team’s been working for months now on the Votridea Online Video Contest Platform, and it just soft-launched today. The platform can do video and photo contests, is cloud-based, fully-scalable and robust (since it’s based on the real-world experiences we got running international contests for the Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs).

David Keener at RailsConf

I will be attending RailsConf, the world’s largest Ruby/Rails conference, in Baltimore from June 8 – 10. This is the first time I’ve had a chance to attend a RailsConf, so I’m really looking forward to it.
