Today I found myself organizing and that included going through a stack of articles that were in my blog material pile. So even though I do not blog consistently, effectively, and nor do I ever put the amount of time to write a decent post I can take a small victory in the fact that I have a blog material pile. Ah, the intention and focus I have until something else comes along!
So on 10/12/10 the WSJ had an article on scrapers which was altogether ho-hum until I saw the flow diagram for the scraping process and it got my geek on. Writing flow diagrams is darn exciting but mine end up looking like an arial view of the Colorado river as they snake back and forth. This flow is simple, effective, clean, and I like it. It also shows that it doesn’t matter what shapes you use if you use them effectively. Take that UML.
