Google Mars

Wahooo…Great…

And we thought that Google only looked for TWD (Total World Domination), it’s sooo much bigger than that…

Computerworld – Sander: Ukendte konsekvenser ved åbent format

Computerworld – Sander: Ukendte konsekvenser ved åbent format

Man må sige at der sker ting og sager for tiden, jeg skal lige gennemtygge Hr. Sanders svar.

Fr. Holmsgaard var, som det tør være trofaste læsere bekendt, med i panel debatten om dokumentformater på Linuxforum 2006. Det var tydeligt at hun er i Open Document Format (ODF) lejren, jeg syntes faktisk hun sad og små-flirtede med Simon Phipps, COSO (Chief Open Source Source Officer) fra SUN Microsystems.

Det er naturligvis ikke helt så nemt som ODF lejren vil havde det til at se ud.

(Meget) mere senere.

Hmm…Do you categorise a story on LEGO as “Technology”? Did it!

Team Blog : What’s the Hubbub?

LOL. Microsoft shows lots of humour, and it’s great that they’re so open about the intentional pouring of fuel on the bonfire of technology hype – it most certainly worked, and many managed to follow the bread-crumbs. I really like the bit about the, supposedly, overlap, with the Apple February 28th “fun” products announcement.

So what is Origami? Well it’s really not much more than a new form factor PC, and the real product name is UMPC (Ultra Mobile PC). Origami was the code name for the project, but Microsoft has decided to keep the name for the community site.

AJAX Magazine

AJAX Magazine

This is a great portal dedicated to AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) development.

I’m really totally amazed by what people are doing with AJAX, Google Maps and Writely are two examples, but I’ve also just stumbled upon iRows, which is an online spreadsheet application – could iRows be next in line to be Googled?

So what type of application can’t be AJAXed? My guess is games and graphics applications, but I’m sure that the community will prove me wrong.

Status over Linuxforum 2006 – business dagen

Tuesday, March 7th, 2006

Linuxforum 2006Det blev jo ikke til så meget med den lovede live reportage fra Linuxforum 2006, men nu er det på tide at gøre lidt status. Det var et spændende arrangement, men jeg savnede måske lidt mere hands-on, og praktiske erfaringer fra det offentliges brug af open source.

Jeg har valgt at dele min reportage op i to, her følger først mine indtryk fra første dagen, fredag, også kaldet “business dagen“.

Business dagen var, som jeg havde forventet – OK det skyldes nok også mit valg af sessioner – meget OpenOffice.org, eller rettere Open Document Format (ODF) orienteret, ikke specielt sexet, men det er bestemt en meget vigtig diskussion, og den er meget vigtigere end diskussionen om hvilken software pakke vi skal anvende til vores kontor produktivitet. Det handler om hvem der ejer vores dokumenter, ikke teknologi.
