Dion Hinchcliffe on AJAX
Dion Hinchcliffe, at his Web 2.0 blog, always has something interesting to say. This time, its a round-up of the latest links and information on AJAX, entitled The Incredible Ongoing Story Of AJAX: Ajax has been the other big software story of 2005, along with Web 2.0. An optional ingredient to Web 2.0 software, Ajax has changed the perception of Web-based software as being horribly clunky, page-oriented, and boring when compared to native computer applications. Ajax describes a set of techniques ......

Kid Changes His Name To
I know this is not technology based, but oh my goodness. There are so many ways to have fun with this, I just don't know where to start. This AP story at Yahoo talks about a kid who changes his name to to help support PETA's anti-KFC campaign: "People don't believe me at first when I tell them my name, but it never fails to spark a discussion," Garnett, er,, said in a statement. "Many vow to boycott KFC after I explain the company's indifference to ......

Free Telephone Service? I don't think so
I'm sure this guy knows more about the telecom industry than I ever will, but seriously, <a href=“http://gigaom.c... telephone calls moving toward nearly being free</a>? I just can't see it happening. I know how much I pay for phone service, both land-line and cell phone, each month, and I don't see how my local and long-distance carriers would be able to make money if they drastically reduced what people have to pay. Mind you, I would love it ......

Brit kid nets $1 million dollars with web page
This falls in the category of “I wish I had thought of this”: The idea: turn his home page into a billboard made up of a million dots, and sell them for a dollar a dot to anyone who wants to put up their logo. A square of 10-by-10 pixels, roughly the size of a letter of type, costs $100 I remember reading about this when it first came up several months ago, and thinking that it was an interesting gimmick, but wasn't going to actually work. Boy was I wrong! I really need to learn to think ......

Intel Unveils New Logo
Its about time, in my opinion. In this News.Com article, they discuss Intel's new logo: The original Intel logo featuring a lowered "e" will be replaced with one showing an oval swirl surrounding the company's name. The phrase "Leap ahead" will supplant "Intel inside," which helped bring the company into the public awareness during the PC boom of the 1990s I think it will help them reposition themselves as being more consumer oriented, and not PC oriented. It will be interesting to see what names ......

Computerworld - What Tech Skills Are Hot For 2006
I always find it interesting to see, at the beginning of a new year, what the IT industry is going to say is the “HOT” thing for this year. For the past couple of years, it has been about outsourcing, and how that is where the industry is headed. This, of course, led to a big backlash against outsourcing, at least in my opinion. Now, Computerworld is predicting the hot tech skills for 2006. They say that Developers, Security Analysts, and Project Managers are the hot ticket items for ......
