Jumping In

In a rather accidental manner, I am starting up several new projects. I am really getting into Wiki's. I installed MediaWiki at work for internal collaboration and knowledge management. I decided to run it on Linux instead of Windows, so I installed Ubuntu. Wow! First time I have ever done anything with a *nix. It's fantastic. I am considering switching my home machine to Ubuntu as well.

I have made many ASP-based web sites before, but now that I had a Linux server, I thought I'd try something different. I installed Django, mainly because I have always wanted an excuse to learn Python. It was much easier to get going than ASP. I had heard the same thing about Ruby On Rails for a while, but had my doubts. Those doubts are gone.

My biggest problem now is finding the time to explore them all.
