I've been seeing quite a lot of activity in the Ruby on Rails collection on Medium:

Sitepoint has published an article on Jekyll, a static site generator. It goes in detail on installing Jekyll, creating the basic structure, testing the site locally and deploying. It even has a short introduction to Liquid, the tagging engine used by Jekyll. I have found this to be the best available walk-through on Jekyll till now. Check it out here.

Chris Parsons and Corey Haines have launched Katacasts. They describe the site as "a place dedicated to promote screencasts of coding katas to a wide audience of people interested in seeing other craftsmen perform a given kata."
