thx 4 the revnu
$100 billion spent on text messages worldwide in 2007... compare to $26.7 billion on Hollywood movies, $19.3 billion on music, $18.8 billion on games... clearly content is not king and communication and human interaction trumps everything... Note also 155 billion text messages sent in the Phillipines - probably the impact of that Arroyo scandal

Applications vs. W3C DOM
July 2003: The DOM is "Good Enough". The tools are now mature enough (especially Mozilla's tooling). They could be improved however. What matters most is the ecosystem around the DOM as a platform, the tutorials, the canonical applications etc. BUDS!

The Challenges of Latency
In any large-scale system, there are a few inescapable facts: 1. A broad customer base will demand reasonably consistent performance across the globe. 2. Business continuity will demand geographic diversity in your deployments. 3. The speed of light isn

The urban world in 2050
There was a lot of hype in the last 30 or 40 years implying that the more important your technology and more important your information technology, the less and less you need to move around, the less and less that you need to meet face-to-face with people

AJAX is great, except for the J and the X
when we look for the new browser to replace the AJAX browser we must make sure it keeps the same 'pain free' execution environment characteristics of the browser. So yes, put in server functionality, but make the server functionality disappear when the us
