App Engine. Our development language of choice is Python.
To invoke a SOAP web service we chose to use the SUDs library rather than create a web service interface from scratch. We tested it locally and seemed to work fine. When we uploaded it to App Engine with some sample code, we found some errors due to limitations in App Engine for using sockets and accessing the file system. To get around this, we extended the SUDS library so that it didn’t use the sockets module, and instead of using the file system we used the App Engine memcache API. This worked very well and we were able to send and receive soap requests from App Engine via the Docmail API. Step 2: Google Docs to Docmail CFH publish a full API to allow developers to integrate their applications with Docmail, a subset of which needed to be used by Appogee to create the interface for users to create mailings from Google Docs.
The Docmail API can accept documents in a variety of formats including doc, docx, PDF and RTF. Step 3 - Performance. This May Be the Most Surreal Building Ever Created. Wiki communities for everyone! Software : Twitterrific. Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate.

Facebook Pulls Back Curtain on 'Timeline' Serkan Piantino in Facebook's New York office Photo: Victor J.
Blue/Wired.com Eight hundred million Facebook profiles will soon get Timeline. Over the coming week, Facebook will officially roll out the latest addition to its world-spanning social network: a Timeline that maps out each profile as a series of chronological events. And for the average user, it will appear as if by magic. But Timeline, Facebook’s biggest interface change in recent memory, is the end result of a six-month effort not only to create a new piece of software, but to find a way of quickly serving that software to an audience of 800 million. Serkan Piantino — the man who will run Facebook’s New York engineering office, set to open in 2012 — oversaw this sweeping project, and as the company prepared to launch the new interface, he sat down with Wired at Facebook’s Palo Alto, California, headquarters to give us the timeline for his Timeline.
Hacking Memories It all started with a hack called Memories. MySQL Lives! CERN physicists find hint of Higgs boson. Researchers at the CERN particle accelerator have found "intriguing hints" of the Higgs boson, a moment of major progress in years of previously unfruitful searching for the elusive subatomic particle.
The search for the Higgs boson is the top priority of CERN's massive and expensive Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, Switzerland. Its Atlas experiment showed a statistically suspicious increase in activity that indicates the Higgs could be pinned down with a mass of 126 giga-electron-volts, and showing some important agreement, its independent CMS experiment found a possible result nearby at 124GeV. "We observe an excess of events around mass of about 126 GeV," CERN physicist and Atlas leader Fabiola Gianotti said in slides presented today at a CERN seminar to physicists who applauded her results. That equates to about 212 quintillionths of a gram; by comparison, a proton is more than 100 times lighter with a mass of 0.938GeV. Her small sentence carries big import for physics. Stamped.

Jalopnik - Drive Free or Die. Reboot Nation (Brooklyn, NY. The workplace is drastically changing.
A December survey showed that a whopping 84% of people planned on leaving their job in 2012, up from 60% just two years ago. Some will look for more pay. Others will look for a better opportunity. But a growing number of passionate workers will strike out on their own, abandoning the safe corporate life to pursue a side project or dream that has been burning inside them. Are you working in a full-time job you hate?
