Thank you, Jonathan. 'Tis a nice thought... If only I read Korean. :)

BTW, if Scott stills plays golf with Howard Jansen, please ask him to give my regards to Howard.

Happy Holidays to all at Sun.

Event Horizon

12/09/05 | by JAdP | Categories: Open Source

Over on his blog, Tech Linkletter, my old neighbor comments on Sun's open source strategy.

But while some companies in the same position might simply fade quietly into nonexistance, that didn’t seem likely with Sun. CEO Scott McNealy and President Jonathan Schwartz have always struck me as the "just crazy enough to do it" types--a personality trait not commonly seen in senior executives. What if Sun didn’t set? What if it went supernova instead?"

"Even if the open source plan works, it seems like a recipe for making Sun a much smaller company in the long run. And in the cold reality of space, supernovas happen just before suns die."end quotation
-- "Sun Continues Free Spree" by Chris Lindquist, 2005 December 08, CIO

I tried to submit the following comment, but seem to have failed, so here it is.

Sun seemed as though it was faltering badly over the past few years; the spark about to go out. &#59;) With this new strategy, it may indeed supernova. But stars don't all die after such an event, it might end up as a black hole - pulling all around it into itself, or at least its sphere of influence.

Remember, that in addition to its open source stratgies, Sun has been following an acquisition strategy as well.

So, old neighbor of mine, as you say, we'll see in a few years. But don't discount any aspect of Sun's strategy to remake itself as a total data management solutions company.

 

More TeleInterActivity from Microsoft

11/21/05 | by JAdP | Categories: Computers and Internet, Open Source, RSS, Syndication

As presaged by Dave Winer yesterday and announced by him today, Ray Ozzie, now at Microsoft, has introduced Simple Sharing Extensions as a new XML nameSpace using RSS and OPML to allow lists of items, and outlines to interactively exchange their information. Marc Canter also hinted at this development in his guest piece for the AlwaysOn Network "Breaking the Web Wide Open".

I believe that this is going to be a tremendously important development, on several levels.

  • It does more to validate Microsofts new software as a service agenda, and demonstrates more about open standards and open APIs than the previous Microsoft demos; as much because of the use of a CreativeCommons license as for opening up synchronization among disparate applications and services like calendar, contacts, events, reading lists, and more, and so much more.
  • Though that is secondary to the impact this will have on bringing many of the promises of Web 2.0 to fruition.
  • The adoption of the SSE standard will allow the realization of personal Identity management and AttentionTrust.
  • We'll see new levels of groupware and enabling of distributed workgroups.
  • This is one more, and very powerful, piece of the puzzle to enable the TeleInterActive Lifestyle™
  • We're all going to have a lot of fun with this.

You can also find more information in the SSE FAQ. Don Dodge has a well-writtne piece on SSE. There's an interesting preview on the AttentionTrust Blog, as well.

Update: Mike Arrington says

"New companies will be built on the back of SSE."end quotation
-- Michael Arrington "COOL - SSE turns RSS bidirectional"

Update 2: Alex Barnett has a good list of reactions to the SSE in his post, "Microsoft proposal: Simple Sharing Extensions for RSS and OPML".

 

Spammers will Wreck Everything

09/24/05 | by JAdP | Categories: Computers and Internet, Open Source

I recently commented to "Spammers will wreck everything..." posted by miss rogue on HorsePigCow. I would have trackbacked initially, but didn't see the link initially. XX(

In that comment, I mentioned that one reason that we had choosen the Open Source b2evolution was that we could see the community's passion about fighting spam.

The community now has even devoted a "sub-forum" to fighting spam, "Got Spam?".

Here are some of the anti-spam features of the latest release, 0.9.1 aka "Dawn".

  • Referer spam gets detected early and triggers a "403 Forbidden" error message in order to save resources on the server.
  • Removed public statistics in order not to attract referer spam.
  • Trying to access public stats triggers a "410 Gone" error message.
  • Complete comment text will be searched for blacklisted keywords.
  • HTML entities can now be used in blacklisted keywords.
  • Restricted URL input into feedback to defeat comment spam.
  • Use of rel="nofollow" for feedback author URLs to defeat comment spam
  • The antispam blacklist is not displayed by default anylonger if it gets longer than 100 entries (and it will indeed get much longer than that...)

But we're really looking forward to the Phoenix release, which promises even more anti-spam features - and a whole lot more.

 

SoCal Bound

07/26/05 | by JAdP | Categories: HonorTagProfessional, Open Source, Business

We're headed to SoCal to kick-off a new project. Three days of Discovery and then back home to write the Strategy Document and then back down to present it, we're shooting for the week of August 8.

We may have to delay the presentation, though. The project involves decision support & data warehousing using open source projects, and LinuxWorld SF05 is the week of August 8. :>> Serendipitous, no?

I'm Joseph A. di Paolantonio and this blog has two main foci: my interest in food, and my interest in the future. This provides a look into my personal life, and is separate from my consulting work…though there will be overlap. I am an independent researcher, working as a strategic consultant and I'm an executive with over 20 years of commercial experience with a technical interest in the intersection of Internet of Things, with advanced data management and analysis methods. I view data science as a team activity, and I feel that the IoT must be viewed as a system. I am leveraging my past activities to understand the adoption and impact of the IoT; first, as a system engineer in aerospace, where I developed Bayesian risk assessment methods for systems within the Space Transportation System (including the Space Shuttle), Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer, Gravity Probe B, and many more, and second, as a enterprise data warehousing, business intelligence and analytics professional. Between my aerospace and IT careers, I indulged my hobby of cooking by starting a food company, Montara Magic, centered around my chocolate sauces. My education combined chemistry, mathematics and philosophy. I performed research into molten salt fuel cells in graduate school, and in photovoltaic materials for a short time in industry. The lure of bringing the human race into space was strong, and when I was offered the chance to combine my chemistry and mathematics skills to develop new risk assessment and system engineering methods for space launch and propulsion systems – I couldn't resist. I perform independent research and strategic consulting to bring value from the Internet of Things, Sensor Analytics Ecosystems and data science teams.I am a caregiver, a lover of science fiction and speculative fantasy, and my passion to learn has led me to a pilot's license, an assistant instructor in SCUBA, nordic and alpine skiing, sea kayaking, and reading everything I can, in as many topics as I can.
