I'll assume monotonic, but is it even linear?

A Google recruiter has asked me to rate my Python skill on a ten-point scale. Can anyone calibrate this scale for me? At the moment, all I know is that ten is the better end, and since Google employs Guido van Rossum I don't want to overestimate. What's a three? a five? a seven? or is this some sneaky test of second-order knowledge and how I deal with bizarrely underspecified problems?

Help me understand interacting with a RESTful API, please

I'm tired of using other people's modules for interacting with websites' APIs. But I can't seem to quite wrap my head around using JSON with a website/cgi script I haven't designed. Are there any good tutorials that talk over how to build a JSON file to send to a RESTful API and then do what you want, preferably generalized so I'm not searching for a new one for each website?

The next facebook

Need ideas for websites I could build. I am going to be in between jobs in the next few months. That gap could be a week or it could be a year depending on how long it takes to find my next gig. During that gap I would like to stay productive. I am a project manager, but I can write decent python/js/css/html. I need ideas for websites I could build that 1) I would have fun doing, 2) Would be something I could talk about in interviews, and 3) Could maybe produce a community, traffic, or a few dollars.

Tips for going from Ruby/Python to Java?

I'm teaching myself to program. I learned the basics with Ruby on Rails, and I'm now coding in Python and Javascript, but I want to try an Android app, and that requires that I use Java. Going from Ruby to Python to Javascript was relatively painless, but I feel like I'm starting all over looking at Java code. Does anyone have any tips for going from scripted languages to Java? Or any really great tutorials for getting started in Java? Or any great tutorials for beginning programmers for Android?
