Persistence Is The Browsers' Most Persistent Problem

10/31/2008
Over on his Tecosytems blog, Redmonk principal analyst Stephen O'Grady picks up a conversation that he and I first batted back and forth on Twitter. Twitter, with its 140-character limit to each post, can cramp even the simplest of dialogs. Take a complex topic like offline persistence of anything (a single page, data, applications, etc.) in a browser and I'm glad he took it to the blogosphere. Sometimes only a blog wi

Amazon: Deserving Of Wall Street's Punishment?

10/23/2008
With four tech titans -- Amazon, EMC, Microsoft, and Sun -- hitting their 52-week lows on Thursday, Oct. 23, and a bunch of others coming awfully close, I wondered in my last post if we should have called it Tech Black Thursday.

There's a consumer version, too. As business user of a MacBook Pro, I'm candidate for this service.

Mashup Camp Returns To Silicon Valley On November 17

10/8/2008
Are you one of the more than 120 people on the who's coming list of people attending this Fall's Mashup Camp? If not, then why not? The mashup approach to software development -- the one whereby applications are built in hours instead of weeks, months or years by melding together functionality and data that's scattered across the Web, a network or both -- will likely make mashups the most important of all software eco

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation.
