SOA Top or Bottom? · John Crupi writes that SOA deployments should be top-down, “problem to architecture to solution”. He specifically says that wrapping existing technology deployments in a Web Services wrapper is a “perfect recipe for a SOA failure”. Hmm... these are strong claims, radical I think, and furthermore, quite new to me. And thus worth pointing to.
 
Good Question · Brad DeLong, an economist and awfully good writer to whom I’ve been subscribed for a long time, raises a simple but awfully good question about Microsoft. Check out his table; it’s actually the SG&A line that has my head shaking.
 
Featherweight Meme Propagation · That (extremely lightweight, I thought) Blogging’s Not Dangerous piece has now been translated into French, Spanish, Italian, Finnish, and German. A few of them (grumble, grumble) skip the caveats in front, the trailing remarks on policy, and the suspicious conclusion about media coverage. I know, I’ll go write a Business Book entitled Eleven Lessons For Success From the Blogosphere and make millions, I tell you, millions. But, just because I thought it was a facile little squib doesn’t mean that I shouldn’t thank those kind people for reading and translating it; and I do.
