The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway

As the dog walked down the Broadway, saw the lamb and recalled the old Genesis song he awaked to the fact, that he was way older than Web 2.0.

Just a post with "Web 2.0" in it. No Proposition.

The Obligatory Contribution To Net Neutrality

Chickens are not completely so chuckleheaded as most of us assumed.
British ornithologists discovored that the White Welsh Coot masters the art of dialectic.
In its long walks along the coast of Wales it does deep contemplation about Net Neutrality.

In these days one has to write about net neutrality. So do I.

Emotional Standards

It's amzing how emotionally geeks can discuss about standards. A good example is the BloggerCon discussion Standars matters.

A Big Step For Mankind

New hope in the slums of the big cities

(Click on the image to see it in full size)
I couldn't hear who. But one of the TWiTs in episode #58 said, that every third could now (with Google Earth 4.0 Beta) see his own house. Provided he had internet access. Brilliant!!!

That obliged me to create this cartoon.

The Man For The Really Hard Stuff

When you have really intricate stuff to explain: Ask Steve Gibson

(Click on the cartoon to see the full size image)

Steve Gibson is really a wizard in explaining the unexplainable. A good example is the NAT episode #42 of Security Now.

Not All Geeks Are Equal

One of these 3 Geeks is a big soccer fan

Two of them not.

This cartoon is dedicated to all Geeks being soccer fan (esp. in the USA where it is presumably not as easy as in the rest of the world; but as I'm not living in the USA I can only guess).
A prominent example is Joe Nuxoll of the Java Posse, who avowed himself as a soccer fan in episode #61).

A Casters Life Is Getting Harder

The Vloggercon TWiT #57: It's fascinating how all the freeky geeks are discussing about the definiton of a notion just being in its genesis (or its agony, who knows).

A Bees Life Is Hard

As I've had no better ideas today the todays cartoon has nothing to do with IT. And like the one from Wednesday is totally meaningless.

Am I Having A Deja vu?

When I hear Inside the Net I sometimes feel like we're in the good old Web 1.0 bubble. But after I've heard episode 24 (about Firefox) I've seen that there is real estate out there.
The only question is: Is Firefox Web 2.0?

4 Geeks, 3 Hats, 2 IDEs And One Language

I must admit that the Java Posse does not only talk about 2 IDEs. But it fit the measure so well. So, please excuse me.
(After the great Java Posse BOF on JavaOne someone stole Tor Norbyes hat. See his blog.)

The World Is One Community

Some are in and some are out.
A really really brilliant speech from Bruce Sterling inspired me.
(With special thanks to TWiT episode #56, in which this speech is mentioned.)

The Quick Start Guide For The NCC-1701-D, Chapter 1: Never ever use the holodeck toilet!

This cartoon does not convey any message.

What's simplicity?

There are great interviews held by Bruce Eckels with several big names in the programming world. My favourite is the one with Andrej Hejlsberg. He creates the notion of complexity covered by simplicity and calls it simplexity.
This inspired me to this cartoon.
(Thanks to the Java Posse who gave me the link to this interviews in their podcat #59)

It' s amazing how Jonathan Schwartz acts. See his rectent blog entry, one if his numerous panel discussions (e.g. a panel discussion from last october) or one of his interviews (e.g. Java Posse). They all show an attitude which differs from most of the companies (wether in the IT- or in the brick-and-mortar part of the world).
I wonder if this is the beginning of a transformation in the market (or just an era): Does a company has to act like Sun (transparent and like a peer in a community) to succeed in the next 10 years? I haven't found an answer yet.
