Daniel Stenberg, one of the primary authors of the libcurl library on which the PHP cURL extension is based, was kind enough to comment on and clarify a recent blog post of mine regarding web scraping using the PHP and cURL.AHe later sent me a tweet to invite me to a new mailing list for web scraping enthusiasts just before tweeting a public invitation. In addition to the mailing list itself, the web site also has links to books (including my book) and popular tools related to the subject. I think this is awesome and I encourage anyone with an interest in web scraping, professional or recreational, to join.
