The Ruby Object Model - Structure and Semantics
Useful article explaining the inner workings of objects, classes, metaclasses, etc.The DCI Architecture: A New Vision of Object-Oriented Programming
Object-oriented programming was supposed to unify the perspectives of the programmer and the end user in computer code: a boon both to usability and program comprehension. While objects capture structure well, they fail to capture system action. DCI is a vision to capture the end user cognitive model of roles and interactions between them.
JinmingFirst Look: Object Oriented CSS
OOCSS isn’t really a framework … but a way of writing scalable, sane, maintainable CSS,” writes Sullivan. Sullivan uses and recommends a grid framework like Yahoo!’s YUI Grids, but you’re free to write your layout styles from scratch using OOCSS principles if that’s your thing. But OOCSS applies equally to the work you do after you have implemented your site’s layout, as you design the blocks and content that slot into your layout. Most web designers tend to write CSS code so that it requires as little extra markup (whether <div> or <span> tags or class attributes) as possible. Fundamentally, adopting OOCSS is making a mental shift towards easy maintenance and reuse of your styles, even if it means writing extra HTML markup.
In October, I’ll speak at Web Directions South 2009 in Sydney about CSS Frameworks. One of the main questions I will answer in my talk is whether or not you should use a CSS Framework in any given project. Since the alternative is writing your own CSS styles from scratch, I’m researching some of the latest thinking on hand-coded CSS.

Hubble: Hubble Finds Unidentified Object in Space, Scientists Puzzled
The headline and story made me think of Bruce Willis in Armageddon when he says, "You're NASA, you've always got a backup plan. You've probably got a team somewhere else thinking up ideas" because it's surprising that they can't even guess as to what this is.
[I]n a paper published last week in the Astrophysical Journal, scientists detail the discovery of a new unidentified object in the middle of nowhere.

This is exactly why we send astronauts to risk their life to service Hubble in a paper published last week
