Javascript overtakes C#

According to TIOBE index, the popularity and usage of Javascript surpasses C# language. I guess this is majorly because of the use of AJAX and Web 2.0 buzz. The original link can be found on the TIOBE site.

Atul Chitnis announced on his blog that -
The OpenAlchemy Project is the opensourced version of Alchemy - the user interface used on the Amida Simputer. Everytime I have shown the Simputer to people abroad, the first thing people have commented on was the interface, and have asked if it was possible to make the code available.
If you are interested in contributing to the project (especially if you are a student), go over to, join the mailing list (you will find some familiar people there already), read through the archives, find out what needs doing - and go for it!

[Update:] Dumb little man points us to Zen habits with some more hacks. The best one I liked was Productivity Hack #9: Wake up early. Definitely the one for me.
