Som navnet antyder beskæftiger den sig med “Ting du ikke vidste eksisterede” og som du sandsynligvis heller ikke har brug for. Hvad med en forhindring du skal forbi for at få din flaske vin, nøgleringe der synger salmer, og der er også et omvendt ur.
When Ray Ozzie posted an announcement to his Weblog about Microsoft’s proposed SSE (Simple Share Extensions) for RSS and OPML (Outline Processor Markup Language), I was delighted. On the technical front, it’s great to see the synchronization DNA of Groove and Lotus Notes finding its way, at last, onto the Web. But on the social front, it was a milestone, too.
Several community wireless and networking specialists have just completed a free, downloadable book designed to instruct people in remote corners of the world on how to build their own Internet connections using wireless gear. While the book itself is noteworthy in that it offers a resource that could have a strong impact on the livelihood of people in remote areas, equally interesting is the way in which it is being distributed.
The book, called “Wireless Networking in the Developing World,” was written by eight volunteers, including Rob Flickenger, a community wireless activist, author and developer as well as Sebastian Büttrich and Tomas Krag, co-founders of the nonprofit organization wire.less.dk. Krag, who instructs people around the globe on how to use wireless technology to set up networks, came up with the idea to write a training manual that could be used by people who might not be able to be taught in person by an expert.
Voice over IP has a structured network that can lay its foundation on, but it lacks many other important features. One of them is a reliable protocol. But this problem is on the way to being solved. SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) is the name of the protocol that seems to be on the lips of every VoIP products manufacturer.
I made a mistake last weekend. Not your typical alcohol-induced mistake …. I downloaded a piece of software I shouldn’t have (more on that in a minute). You see, having just done major info-surfing, I had anti-virus on the brain. And according to Forrester Research, the same goes for most IT managers these days.
Jeg syntes det er tankevækkende, at folk bliver rasende og meget voldsomme i deres udtalelser når et flag eller en dansk ambassade brændes af, mens de stort set ikke påvirkes af millioners død i Afrika, USA’s tortur, forholdene i diktatur-stater, eller en flygtnings hjemsendelse til tortur.
Hvad er et stykke stof eller en bygning mod et menneskeliv? Der er mange der bør få ordnet deres prioriteter og begynde at tænke logisk, frem for at reagere på den her måde. Hvordan kan de undgå at blive vrede over EU’s landbrugsstøtte, der holder U-landene i fattigdom, regeringens umenneskelige politik eller DK og USA’s krig i Irak?
Så vågn dog op!
