Emmet - Meet better ZenCoding

Recently new version of ZenCoding named Emmet came out of beta: http://docs.emmet.io/



Emmet came out with support for many popular IDE's and editors. For me in SublimeText2 is only a matter of installing a Emmet package with PackageControl.
If you know ZenCoding most of your workflow will be the same eg:
ul#nav>li.item$*4>a{Item $}
with Tab will create:
<ul id="nav">             <li class="item1"><a href="">Item 1</a></li>             <li class="item2"><a href="">Item 2</a></li>             <li class="item3"><a href="">Item 3</a></li>             <li class="item4"><a href="">Item 4</a></li>         </ul>
New thing are abbreviations for CSS and Actions, fortunately there is cheat-sheet at docs page: http://docs.emmet.io/cheat-sheet/
Example of CSS:
bd     is translated to: border:|;

WebSummary - fast JS, html5 myths and how to be a presenter. 6 November 2012

From some time I think about posting here summary of my tweets. As most nowadays most of the time I use twitter and google reader for RSS, posting and sharing. Sometimes I use Yammer to share stuff in company. Downfall of that is that I stopped writing on my blog.

I want to change it, but simply copying data from my twitter isn't going to be interesting, so I came up with the idea to filter it to most interesting links (in my opinion).
