Googleswarmed · Some­thing hap­pened to on­go­ing to­day that I haven't seen be­fore. Sud­den­ly, for a few min­utes this af­ter­noon, the Google crawlers were all over me, and I'm won­der­ing if this hap­pens of­ten and what it mean­s ...
Business Ignorance · This is the first of a two-parter on the in­for­ma­tion land­scape out there in the re­al world, driv­en by some strat­e­gy think­ing we've been do­ing about our prod­uct and how to sell it. In this part, I sur­vey the “Business Intelligence” land­scape (it's bad). In Part 2, the ques­tion is: how to get peo­ple to try new tech­nol­o­gy in tough times? (Warn­ing: kind of cor­po­rate, but I think a lot of peo­ple are fac­ing the same is­sues.) ...
Domestic Nürnberg · Lau­ren was away on busi­ness for two weeks and man­aged to get in a few days' va­ca­tion in Ger­many, where she used to live. She took lots of pho­to­s, in­clud­ing a few hero­ic shots of the re­con­struc­tion of Ber­lin.

The RDF.net Challenge · I've owned the do­main name RDF.net for years, but nev­er done any­thing with it. This was kicked in­to the front of my con­scious­ness to­day by an en­ter­tain­ing bolt from the blue. Here­with some gen­er­al notes on RDF, its his­to­ry and prospect­s, and a Grand Chal­lenge to the RDF com­mu­ni­ty: I'll give RDF.net to who­ev­er builds the first ap­pli­ca­tion that de­serves it ...
Trying Technology Painlessly · This is Part 2 of an Antarctica-biz-strategy piece I'm run­ning here be­cause I think these is­sues are pret­ty ubiq­ui­tous; Part 1 is about Busi­ness In­tel­li­gence, so called. This piece talks about how tough it is to sell soft­ware these days, and why, and a mar­ket­ing idea we've cooked up to try to re­move the risk from buy­ing soft­ware, which I think ought to work well be­yond our patch of tur­f. (Warn­ing: kind of cor­po­rate, but I think a lot of peo­ple are fac­ing the same is­sues.) ...
