Rob Lund goes over how to build a simple web scraper. These types of programs can be used for all kinds of cool things, pulling data from sites without an API, creating a pseudo-RSS feed, command line web tools, etc. Rob's examples use Ruby and a couple simple libraries, but prior knowledge of Ruby is not necessary to understand how it works. In fact, these simple scripts could be the perfect way to get started messing around with Ruby.
