Larry O’Brien’s Windows and .NET watch (in the SD Times) focuses on Python.  Not sure if it’s a good thing or a bad thing.
Thoughtful stuff.
A News Roundup: just some random stories.
I was sent a link to a Business Week article on “Return on Insight” a kind of pun on “Return on Investment”.  The article isn’t too helpful, but it does have some clever quotes.
Saw an entry in SD Times announcing the Python 3.0 change.  Time to start alerting my management to our upgrade plans.
I just uncovered my copy of the Apple 32 Developer’s Handbook. Yours free for the asking.
Vista’s failure is often characterized as “negative perception of the Windows Vista operating system is growing”.  Isn’t that just failure reworded to not include “FAIL”?  Why sugar-coat it?
Christopher Null lists top 50 tech visionaries in a PC World article.  My personal hero makes the cut.
GoDaddy shuts a site down because – uhh – well – it’s hard to say. GoDaddy loses the revenue, so does the site that was shut down. Who’s the winner here?  The content could be viewed as politically challenging, but it sure looked like citizen oversight of government operations.
Someone mentioned Al Gore’s Internet the other day.  Ooooh that irritates me.  Especially when I consider the alternative to a government-funded open source Internet.
News slowly trickling in: Dynamic Languages are Growing.  This feels like fark.com with a label of [Obvious].
See the Communications of the ACM , Volume 50, Issue 4 (April 2007), pages 55 - 61, “Designing data-intensive web applications for content accessibility using web marts ”. It is a very, very cool design pattern for web content presentation. It applies directly to structuring complex content in Django.
eWeek has a nice article, “Race Is On to Woo Next-Gen Developer ”, where Darryl K. Taft covers the current trends on dynamic programming nicely. In particular it provides some support for a couple of potential corporate IT direction-changes.
See Allen Holub’s Java Watch column in the SD Times , The Next Big Thing . Java’s been around a decade; long enough to be widely used, standardized and obsolete. So what’s next?
See e-Week this week for Lisa Vaas’ thoughts, Is There Hope for Apple in the Enterprise? She’s got a good point, but missed something important.
More references to Lessig’s Powerpoint style.
Here’s the problem with AI: the intelligent software now has a personality – and its irritating.
