Only a matter of seeing simple data structures and designing lightweight tools that can cross the galaxy
Remember Markov chains? I should get back into that; they're awfully good for sparking creativity.

You know, just having "sproggler" as a concept is focusing my thoughts. You could easily envision a Web application prototyping platform there. So ... what information would there be for any given project?
- Data schema
- Brief mission statement
- Requirements document
- List of infrastructural components
- Basic system description
- Use cases
- Style sheets

Some things I'm finding useful:
Template Toolkit in Perl
Perl's Parse::RecDescent - actually, I'm surprised how long I lived without this one.
A little article along the way about judging C/C++ comments for readability using Parse::RecDescent and Lingua::EN::Fathom.
Then I found a bunch of stuff about PHP's session variable and how to implement login systems in PHP, some using Ajax.
I registered the domain "sproggler.com", for some nebulous future semantic-programming-online service. One probably shouldn't register speculative domains late at night.
