"We are the nation that put cars in driveways and computers in offices; the nation of Edison and the Wright brothers; of Google and Facebook. In America, innovation doesn’t just change our lives. It’s how we make a living." With this one sentence, spoken Tuesday during his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama ushered in once and for all the Age of Sociotechnology, the age that recognizes the importance of the interaction between people and technology in both workplaces and society. Obama recognizes perhaps better than anyone in America the extent to which technology nowadays is socially constructed and society is technically constructed. "We are the nation...of Google and Facebook" - those eight words may well go on to become the most significant President Obama has ever uttered to date. For better or for worse, it would seem that the destiny of the U.S.... (more)

Shrink-Url – Use PowerShell To Shrink Your Urls

Shrinking your Url’s is all the rage nowadays.  If you are on Twitter, then odds are you have used one.  Despite CodingHorror’s distaste for them in his recent blog post on Url Shorteners: Destroying the Web since 2002, they are a fact of life when we live in a world of 140 character status updates. So what’s a URL shrinking service anyway?  Well, to put it simply, you supply them with a URL, they then supply you with a shorter URL containing a lookup “key”.  When future requests are made to this shorter URL, connections are routed to that services website where they convert the short URL to the original URL and issue a HTTP Redirect back to your browser to send you off to the original long url website. So, what’s a guy, or gal, to do if they want to set their status programmatically on Twitter, Facebook, FriendFeed, or the other gazillion social networking sites ... (more)

Mashable Sees Double Rainbows as Google Goes Gaga for OAuth

Enterprise developers and architects beware: OAuth is not the double rainbow it is made out to be. It can be a foundational technology for your applications, but only if you’re aware of the risks. OAuth has been silently growing as the favored mechanism for cross-site authentication in the Web 2.0 world. The ability to leverage a single set of credentials across a variety of sites reduces the number of username/password combinations a user must remember. It also inherently provides for a granular authorization scheme. Google’s announcement that it now offers OAuth support for Google Apps APIs was widely mentioned this week including Mashable’s declaration that Google’s adoption implies all applications must follow suit. Now. Stop reading, get to it. It was made out to sound like that much of an imperative. Google’s argument that OAuth is more secure than the Client... (more)

Facebook Valuation Hits $15BN As Microsoft Buys 1.6% Stake For $240M

Launched in February 2004, Facebook is now worth $15BN - judging from the fact that Microsoft has reportedly just bought itself a modest 1.6% chunk of the company for a staggering $240M. Mark Zuckerberg, a former member of the Harvard Class of 2006, will not be short of change any time soon: as of October 2007, the website had 42 million active members worldwide and expects to pass 60 million users by the end of the year. According to today's New York Times, "Microsoft will sell the banner ads appearing on Facebook outside of the United States, splitting the revenue with it." "Making this investment and expanding this partnership will position Microsoft and Facebook to better take advantage of advertising opportunities around the world, and is a great win not only for our two companies, but also our collective users and advertisers," said Kevin Johnson, president of t...

Exclusive Q&A with Coach Wei - Chairman, Founder & CTO of Nexaweb

'Ten years ago,' Nexaweb Chairman, Founder & CTO Coach Wei tells Jeremy Geelan in this exclusive interview with AJAXWorld Magazine, 'I was as a poor graduate student naive enough to start a company at the bottom of the 'dot-bomb' burst. I learned so much coping with the 'nuclear winter,' raising $18M in financing, working through all the challenges associated with the market, dealing with investors and everything else. I only wish that I had known all this before I got started.' View Coach Wei on SYS-CON.TV Read Coach Wei's Articles AJAXWorld Magazine: As the technology commentator who coined the phrase “the AJAX wildfire” fifteen months ago, less than a year after Jesse James Garrett’s seminal essay, what was it precisely that made you so certain that AJAX was going to spread Web- and world-wide? How did you know it was no mere fad? Coach Wei: Since 1996, the drea... (more)
