Future of RSS by Newsgator
Techcrunch summary of Newsgator’s view of the future of RSS. I believe that no enterprise should consider any software that does not produce useful RSS feeds which is the future of RSS.permalink ( Friday, June 30, 2006 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post
The Ajax community continues to buzz about the json data format. I even went to the talk by … at Ajax Experience which was great, but you can get most of the same info from the web site. After about 3 hours of coding using json yesterday, I’m convinced that it is a big deal and it is a better format that XML for many applications.
So what is the big deal? Any significant use of a new content format has many implications – it is a new extension of man. This would be worth probing using McLuhan’s Laws of Media.permalink ( Friday, June 30, 2006 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post

Got home from vacation and watched the Rocketboom on Net Neutrality for 6/23/06. This was a great presentation on the issue and call to action. We all have to act against this extortion by the telcos. There television ad about Google server farms with their fake lobby name is a disgusting lie. So please Save the Internet.permalink ( Sunday, June 25, 2006 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post
User Experience Week 2006 Just registered for the User Experience Week by adaptive path. Design as a field of study has always interested me and adaptive path has really been advancing the subject. User design is what use to be called just design in 1969 when Victor Papanek wrote Design for the Real World. permalink ( Sunday, June 25, 2006 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post

Google Moves Close to the Resource I grew up next to a new steel mill. It was built there because of the easy transport of raw materials: iron ore and coal. Then the people came. So it is very interesting to read in the NYT that Google (and Microsoft and Yahoo) building huge server farms on the Columbia River close to the source of the most important resource: electric power. So instead of being on a waterway for transportation they are building on the waterway for the power generation. Different age. permalink ( Wednesday, June 14, 2006 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post

Good Enough: What is It?
It looks like in about 10 days that the Zlides editor will be far enough along to invite a few people to take a close look at Zlides. I’m not so concerned about the editor right now as I’m concerned that the simple format of the Zlides presenter is good enough.
Good enough appears to be a principle of web 2.0. So I’ll be on the hunt for a few days looking for posts and articles talking about ‘good enough’.permalink ( Monday, June 12, 2006 ) Ray 0 comments links to this post
