One of the biggest rivals to Rails during the last year or two has been Django, a Python-based framework with many of the same goals as Rails. When I first began developing Web applications, I did most of my work in Perl, and my programs were invoked via CGI. My preferences have shifted somewhat over the years, first toward component- and template-based systems, such as Mason and Zope, and then toward all-encompassing frameworks, such as OpenACS. Most recently, I've been spending time using...

I play with open-source OCR (Optical Character Recognition) packages periodically. My last foray was a few years ago when I bought a tablet PC and wanted to scan in some of my course books so I could carry just one thing to school.
