Yesterday at lunch with our O’Reilly editor, I learned about O’Reilly’s new site called OnLamp, which covers a technology called LAMP (an acronym for Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP/Python/Perl). LAMP is being called an open source Web development platform. Apparently, this acronym is being used pretty heavily in Europe, though this is the first I’ve heard of it.

I learned about a new collaborative weblog called Plastic based on the Perl code used to run Slashdot. The design is way better than Slashdot, and the content seems pretty good.
