Just a quick tip to share since this was not as straightforward on Snow Leopard as I would have liked. I originally went to install psycopg2 on Snow Leopard and got the following error…
In file included from psycopg/psycopgmodule.c:32:
./psycopg/psycopg.h:31:22: error: libpq-fe.h: No such file or directory
No problem since I hadn’t installed Postgresql anyway. But after installing postgreqsql91 via MacPorts I was still getting the same error. I used the command port contents postgresql to determine the files that were installed via MacPorts and noted that Postgresql’s include files where in /opt/local/include and the libraries were in /opt/local/lib/.
I then downloaded the psycopg2 Python package from http://initd.org/psycopg/tarballs/psycopg2-2.3.2.tar.gz and unpacked it. You then need to modify the setup.cfg file adding the following lines:
You can then install as normal using python setup.py install
Hope it helps somebody.

Imagine being lost on a deserted island with no hope of being discovered with only a volleyball named Wilson to keep you company. There’s a reason pirates used marooning as a form of torture. It’s a miserable existence (if you can call it that) that usually doesn’t end so well. But yet that’s what becomes of most corporate knowledge. It’s left on various file servers across the enterprise with little hope of discovery or rescue (aka. reuse).
In my last post entitled Strategic Reuse Process, we looked at an overall framework for analyzing how information flows through an organization and the hurdles encountered on its way to reuse. But how does an artifact go from Publication to Discovery (see here for definition)? In this post I want to dig a little deeper and discuss the first hurdle on our way to reuse, Findability.
a. The quality of begin locatable or navigable
b. The degree to which a particular object is easy to discover or locate.
c. The degree to which a system or environment supports navigation and retrieval
