I like Swift, but whenever I use it for long periods I consistently find myself missing simple Python features.

I miss in, any(), all(), and comprehensions.

Just saw this from Kottke about how a collection of treaties between the U.S. and the Indian Tribes are now digitized and available.

You'd be amazed at what ~100 lines of bash can do to make your life easier.
