This is very cool: pythonfs.

It's a patch against LUFS (a tool for implementing user-mode filesystems in Linux) that lets you write your filesystems in Python.

Now, most of my flow goes to this site right here, where you're reading these words, and I've found out that my readers generally don't follow if I start writing in another place. But if you have a good idea for a topical blog (that has something to do with scripting), Dave's offer could be a great way to make yourself known.
