Over the last few days I’ve been working on some python scripts to help me manage more sites. It’s something that I’ve wanted to solve for a while… find a way to manage 1000’s of websites. It’s a difficult problem to solve.
I keep thinking of a news article I read in Wired Magazine. There’s a guy in California that is the most published author in history because he has a team of programmers that write natural language processors that get, parse, process and organize information into book format and then send them to the printers. With something like a 100,000 different books published; it’s crazy.
I’m starting to design a framework that will serve to get and re-purpose content from the internet, then put it all together on my websites.
There’s already a bunch of low quality scripts out there to do similar things… obviously… it’s pretty trivial to download and upload content. Text processing is however much more difficult and requires a new level of complexity.
A lot of the ideas for the framework are coming from my experience at work.
