Several weeks ago at OSBC I posed a serious of “hard questions” about open source software. They weren’t meant to demean it, of course, but were really to say that software for the enterprise needs to be held to very … Continue reading
Ok, this one is just for fun. I was looking for a green Novell gecko earlier today and came across their “Geeko Builder” website. Here’s what I came up with in about two minutes:
In a post last week I noted that the presentations I produced ten years ago were more complicated than those I made and used today. Many of the whiz-bang features in presentation software are just not things that I use, … Continue reading
I don’t know about you, but the presentations I create today are much simpler in design than those I created ten years ago. For example, I now never create presentations that include animation and builds slide transitions sound video Any … Continue reading
A week and a half ago I posted some photos of early flowering plants here in northwest New York State. Though I was away much of this week on a business trip, the weather evidently was warm, sunny, and evidently … Continue reading
On Tuesday morning, March 23, at 10:30 in Salt Lake City, Jean Staten Healy and I will be presenting a talk called “Linux as a Catalyst for a Smarter Planet” at Novell’s BrainShare conference. The talk is coded as SPR201 … Continue reading
Several days ago I posted the slides I used at the Open Source Business Conference in PDF form and also provided the SlideShare version. For those who want to see the contents of the slides directly, I’ve included most of … Continue reading

I’m sitting in the airport waiting for the first of two flights that will take me out to OSBC, the Open Source Business Conference in San Francisco. It will be a very quick trip and I’ll only be at the … Continue reading
This is my latest update on my working through the list of Hugo and Nebula Award winners for Best Novel for Science Fiction and Fantasy. It’s a way for me to be both goal directed and to read well regarded … Continue reading
Every year I find it hard to resist slipping out of the house on warm sunny days in late winter and photographing the first flowers that break through the ground and snow. Here’s this year’s batch: Here’s what things looked … Continue reading
Judith Hurwitz, Adam Jollans, and I are hosting a webcast on Wednesday, March 17, at 12 noon ET called “Cloud Computing Made Easy with IBM and Linux.” From the description: If you are implementing cloud computing, or considering clouds but … Continue reading
