The Fog is Back

11/23/05 | by JAdP | Categories: Personal

After days and days of bright, blue skys and warm temperatures (our normal October weather, but in November), the fog is back on the San Mateo Coastside; at least in Moss Beach. I can harldy see the "holy cypress" out my office window.

Update 2005.11.23;07h55PDT: I can see the top of the cypress and blue sky above, but the mist is hanging in the lower branches of the trees all the way down the hill, and I can't see the ocean. I guess "summer" isn't back. The bright, blue skies of autumn will come again today.

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".


At the Riya Launch Party

11/18/05 | by JAdP | Categories: Computers and Internet, Photos

We saw plenty of these shirts tonight. Clarise and I told Tara that we would take daytime TheraFlu, and make the Riya, launch party, and so we did. Many thanks to Tara for adding us to the list.

It was great fun, and I'm sure that Tara gave a great demo - except we couldn't see it or hear it. There were that many people there.

But on Monday, the next phase of Riya's alpha testing launches, with many new features and many new testers, going from 25 users in the first phase to 1000 in the next phase, out of the 5000 requests Ojos received. And as Munjal said, all due to the power of the blogosphere.

We had a great time. We got to catch up with Dan Gillmor, and that's always good.

And we got to meet some interesting people. We really want to thank Andrea, who came over to find out what the "short people" were doing. :p She introduced us to Allie and Ethan. Allie does marketing for the company Ethan started: Zvents. I first read about Zvents on SiliconBeat when they launched at Web2.0

Thanks to Munjal and Mike. It was a great party.

Congratulations again to the entire Ojos crew.

And about all those Google rumours. Mike confirmed that it was true, and then admitted that he was lying through his teeth. They weren't confirmed, denied or ignored, just the butt of a joke. &#59;)

Clarise and I are off to the ANZA Technology Network 4th Annual Gateway to the U.S. Conference. If you have an interest in working with companies and governments down under in the land of Oz and Hobbits, maybe we'll see you there.

Moon over Moss Beach

'Tis the rarest of nights on the coast. Crisp, clear, and a nearly full moon.

Not the best picture perhaps. But it shows one reason I like living here.

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.
