One Line of Code That Changed the Web Forever

After presenting to a partner of Kaazing last week I got asked what impact the emerging WebSocket standard would have on the Web, assuming we continue down the path that has already been laid out. The impact could be the same, or even more profound, as when we were first introduced to HTTP as a means to share static documents. The difference is that this time the targeted market is already defined – it is called the Web.

Cloud Computing: "Cloud Thinking" Abounds at Microsoft, Sun and Dell

Hugh MacLeod's "Gaping Void" Blog In the last couple of months I've been getting increasingly aware of "Cloud Thinking." It's seriously interesting to me.

It was even just announced recently that Dell was applying to trademark the term, "Cloud Computing". Microsoft is now seriously planning for the post-Windows era, and you guessed it, The Cloud features heavily. About a year ago, I was at a geek breakfast in London with Steve Clayto... (more)
