I spotted a post by Chris Breisch that pointed to this article in the Washington Post by Richard Cohen. It is the story of Gabriela Ocampo and her battle with, of all things, Algebra. In short: Last year, she dropped out of the 12th grade at Birmingham High School in Los Angeles after failing algebra six times in six semesters, trying it a seventh time and finally just despairing over ever getting it. So, according to the Los Angeles Times, she "gathered her textbooks, dropped them at the campus ......

Posts like this are the reason we all love Don. When asked for his opinion on an internal product debate on REST vs SOAP, Don summed up the salient points quite succinctly and then finished up with the following action points: If you want a great experience for .NET/Java devs, you’ll typically publish schemas (through wsdl) and support SOAP If you want a great experience for LAMP folks, you’ll support POX messages and will provide a non-XSD description of your formats If you want to reach ......

He thought to himself, "She looks ......

James Bow has put together a site to aggregate content from bloggers in the Waterllo Wellington region of Ontario, Canada. This region is also known as Canada's Technology Triangle. It's where I started and continue to run Canada's Technology Triangle .NET User Group. Man that's a mouthful. Until now, there were just a few politically oriented bloggers over there. But now... The GEEKS HAVE ARRIVED!! Well ok; A geek. It's just me right now. But surely, all of my many fans in the CTT will rush to list ......

I'm gonna say this up front, so that there's no confusion. I'm NOT against open source. I am, however, against it's use in most corporate environments. My strongest argument for this is that there is no one person or organization that you can hold accountable when something goes pear-shaped. There's no “throat to choke”. A recent bug in Subversion, an open source version control system whose mission is to become a compelling alternative to CVS which itself is an alternative to RCS, PRCS, ......
