Thought some of you guys might like to know that that it looks like the
BBC are trialing Rails. I got a DB error when trying to connect to their
prototype cataloging system the other day.

Sorry if this is old news.

Hello John,

Thought some of you guys might like to know that that it looks like the
BBC are trialing Rails. I got a DB error when trying to connect to their
prototype cataloging system the other day.

Is it a coincidence or are you at XTech 2006 ?

It has been known for some time that the BBC catalogue would be on
Rails. But it only came public a few weeks ago.

I think BBC simply “got” web 2.0. How web2.0 is this?

I just wish I had a database like BBC’s to play with. Endless
possibilities.
