joshua : redis - another k/v distributed store
Simon Willison : redis - redis. An in-memory scalable key/value store but with an important difference: this one lets you perform list and set operations against keys, opening up a whole new set of possibilities for application development. It’s very young but already support [via]
Rod Begbie : redis - Key-value datastore. Fast like memcached, but persists to disk and can deal with pushing and popping with lists and sets. Just the thing to solve some of the problems I've been having with my RDBMS on a project I'm hacking on. [via] #
bmilleare : Redis - A persistent key-value database with built-in net interface written in ANSI-C for Posix systems. Seems pretty fast - 110k SETs/sec and 81k GETs/sec on an entry level linux box.#

Rod Begbie : Silly season [dive into mark] - Beautiful summation of the current Adobe Apollo/Microsoft Silverlight hype-off from Mark Pilgrim. "That poster may as well be titled "Fucked 6 Ways From Sunday," because that's what you'll be if you buy into any of this." #
jimray : Mark Pilgrim on Apollo, Silverlight and why he doesn't think you should use either - "Y’all have fun. Play with your vendor-specific runtimes. Don’t call me when you wake up one morning with a pink line in the round window and your BFF vendor won’t return your calls."
Simon Willison : Silly season - Silly season. Mark expresses exactly what I’ve been thinking. The fawning over Silverlight and Apollo is incredibly short sighted.
jcgregorio : Silly season [dive into mark] - ""building applications on the web that works."" Of course, all the commenters skip the money quote and try to defend their share-cropping platform of choice.
deusx : Silly season [dive into mark] - "Sigh. I used to have the strength to argue against such foolishness. Nowadays I’m reduced to nothing more than Grey’s-Anatomy-esque catchphrases."
