How To Eat Crow And Like It!

When "LinDows" first appeared I had signed up for the mailing notifications. I kept hearing and reading about all the great things it would do. A Linux operating system with the ability to run Windows programs. - in my mind this was taking the best of both worlds and merging them. But there was secrecy eveloped around this new OS, followed by brouhaha when MS filed an injuction against this new upstart company. I followed the story and developments for many months, and when nothing was ever delivered as originally stated I became suspicous, downright paranoid, that this was just a marketing ploy by MS. In the February issue of Linux Business Week (Vol. 2, issue 2) I stated flat out that I did not think this was a viable company, and that their stated direction was nothing more than a diversionary tactic to foil the public into thinking MS was against this company. I... (more)

i-Technology Viewpoint: "Personal Blogs Will Be Dead in Another Two or Three Years"

Web 2.0 has been a buzzword shrouded in mystery. Although I've heard it used hundreds of times in the past year, I've never been able to find a good definition of what it actually means. This is in part because, as Paul Graham points out, Dougherty coined the term before defining it. When brainstorming on Web 2.0, O'Reilly laid out a list of services that seemed qualitatively different than those that had come before and looked for patterns. What he eventually came up with was a list of seven principles and eight patterns. O'Reilly hits the nail on the head here with his inductive approach. However, I still come away from O'Reilly's manifesto wishing for definitive clarity. So here I set out to put forth a working definition of what Web 2.0 really is, how it differs from Web 1.0, and how it will differ from what may come after. I am not proposing that these are abso...

Betting on Java for AJAX

Each day as an AJAX developer seems to bring another helpful revelation: a new tool, a new gadget, a new way to reinvent the browser. But even when I'm confronted with a breakthrough as big as Firebug - the brilliant debugging tool for Firefox - in the back of my mind I'm reminded that the AJAX state-of-the-art is trailing behind the debugging tools that we've had in Java for years. With age comes maturity, and with Java's maturity has come a wealth of development environments, field-tested frameworks, and a rich set of strongly typed APIs. In my current company, we all share a background in enterprise Web development. Our primary goal has always been to take the most innovative user interface technologies and massage them into a form that new programmers can feel comfortable with, no matter the underlying platform. Although I have significant experience in both J... (more)

I CAN HAS DEFINISHUN of SoftADC and vADC?

In the networking side of the world, vendors often seek to differentiate their solutions not just based on features and functionality, but on form-factor, as well. Using a descriptor to impart an understanding of the deployment form-factor of a particular solution has always been quite common: appliance, hardware, platform, etc... Sometimes these terms come from analysts, other times they come from vendors themselves. Regardless of where they originate, they quickly propagate and unfortunately often do so without the benefit of a clear definition. A reader recently asked a question that reminded me that we've done just that as we cloud computing and virtualization creep into our vernacular. Quite simply the question was, "What's the definition of a Soft ADC and vADC?" That's actually an interesting question as it's more broadly applicable than just to ADCs. For exa... (more)

U.S. Corporations Spent $2.4 Billion on Social Network Marketing in 2009

New Media on Ulitzer MarketResearch.com has announced the addition of Mintel International Group Ltd.'s new report "Social Networking - US" to their collection of Social Networking market reports. It seems important to the market that users be able to continue to access current SNS for free, or they are likely to simply leave the site. However, many companies are using SNS for advertising purposes. Companies are accustomed to paying for advertising and are likely to continue to use Facebook, Twitter, etc., even if a "corporate account" comes with a price tag. Likewise, any third party app that makes money with advertising could be required to pay a flat fee to the SNS, or a percentage of profits. LinkedIn has achieved success based on increased unemployment in recent years, but unemployment and underemployment is not limited to the white-collar worker. There is roo... (more)
