Cloud Expo on Ulitzer Following on the heals of being named one of three EcoTech warriors earlier in the year, and then number 5 in the top ten independent bloggers at StorageMonkeys earlier this year (plus appearing on InfoSmack), the momentum continues more recently being named as the 23rd out of the top 30 influential virtualization bloggers by Cloud Computing Expo (www.cloudcomputingexpo.com) and Ulitzer (www.ulitzer.com). If that were not enough, I was also surprised to learn recently that I have also made a debut appearance at number 79 in the Technobabble top 400 analyst and independent blogger lists as well.

A Box Life

IT Strategy A Box Life is a cute idea for QR Codes sponsored by clothing firm Columbia as a recycling initiative.

Web 2.0 Is Dead and Web 3.0 Is Five Years Away

http://twitter.com/fuatkircaali Do you remember our Y2K problem eight years ago? On January 1, 2000, all of a sudden, there was no Y2K problem. For many years every software company collectively made billions of dollars on Y2K projects. Y2K became an industry inside the software industry. I recall meeting a computer consultant who claimed to be fixing the Y2K problem on QuickBooks on a local PC used by a local mom and pop shop, a "hire a nurse" small business. Unfortunately Web 2.0 was not so lucky. Forget about the IBMs, Microsofts, Oracles of the industry for a moment that for... (more)
