Thanks to Eddie and Steve for weighing in on the discussion I started yesterday. I think fundamentally, we disagree about who has more damaging information. I say Amazon does. Eddie and Steve say Google. My argument is that purchase history (even without exposing credit cards) can be more damaging than search/email/feed reading/documents. I say that… Read More

Visionaries from around the globe sharing their perspective in digestible chunks you can enjoy from your PC in your boxers. In this video, Chris Anderson of Wired has explains the 4 stages of technology. Briefly they are:… Read More
I’m a paranoid guy, always have been. Last week’s report by Privacy International that slammed Google as “hostile to privacy” got me thinking about Amazon vs. Google, which knows more about me and how I feel about them. I happened to be downloading Smokin’ Aces (any good?) to my Tivo from Amazon Unbox, so I… Read More
A common analogy used in business is that of war. Conceptually speaking war used to be easy. You had an enemy, they had a flag, a home base, troops huddled together, and clear lines of division. This was true during revolutionary times and remained true up through the major world wars. Enter Guerrilla Tactics: From… Read More

Will is extracting PeopleCode out of PSFT projects to files then using subversion for version control. Sounds like something the Grey Sparling guys are doing.
Wil Bailey’s trying to Rails’ify a PeopleSoft database… should be interesting
A contrarian view. I think he’s wrong. Of course, enterprises won’t change overnight, but it will eventually. A new generation of workers will transform how enterprises work, but it’ll take a few years for it to happen. Companies like Oracle will help.
Despite what Joel has to say on this topic, I think Rails is ready for the enterprise. And companies who create enterprise apps should definitely be looking at Rails. Here’s why… Having worked with PeopleSoft for over ten years, I’ve had the pleasure to experience the joy in building enterprise applications with a rapid and… Read More

I can’t keep quiet anymore, so I’m whispering into the blogosphere echo chamber. I think, wait for it . . . Google’s acquisition frenzy isn’t over yet. Nothing like going out on a limb, stunning prognostication. Which company you ask, assuming you’re still reading? How about salesforce.com? How does that strike you? This isn’t a… Read More
