Avalon = Flash-killer?
Alex points to some docs and comments about Avalon, Microsoft's upcoming "presentation subsystem," and how it relates to Flash. I definitely like the idea of mixing code and markup like this (tags for layout, script for behavior). I do have a couple questions, though. First, despite Windows' near-ubiquity, will the fact that this only runs on Windows boxes limit its usefulness for web applications to controlled corporate environments? Second, will this de-democratize interface design, forcing out visual and product designers in favor of CS-educated engineers?

PDC Monday afternoon: "it's not all about Indigo"
Well, that's a little bit of a white lie: for me, it is mostly about Indigo - and the little lift of the covers from DonB and ChrisAn in the keynote had merely whetted my appetite... but Don wasn't speaking until late afternoon, so what to do beforehand? Well, I'll be eternally grateful to the exhibitors in the expo hall who helped me out of my no-clean-clothing fix by providing a multitude of freebie T-shirts advertising their products. One new (if slightly one-dimensional) wardrobe later, and I feel a need for some more technology, so slope off to see what's new in MC++ for Whidbey. Yes, I'm a Luddite, my car gets forty rods to the hogshead and that's the way I like it! See, while you're all swanning around in your shiney all-singing all-dancing all-managed world, someone has to be crawling around under the stage lashing the whole show together. And MC++ is very good when it comes to making interop work properly, and until the entire world's managed, we're still going to need ...

Got Kids?
Imagine for one terrifying moment that you are at a large crowded place like an amusement park, or an air show. Imagine that you just turned around in the crowd and your child is missing. Quick, what was s/he wearing? How recent is the picture in your wallet? Quick, seconds count! What was your child wearing when s/he left for school this morning? Times up! How'd you do?

Quick, what was s/he wearing? How recent is the picture in your wallet? Quick, seconds count! What was your child wearing when s/he left for school this morning? Times up! How'd you do? In a world filled with digital cameras and phone cams there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to answer that question quickly and with confidence. And there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to provide the people that are going to help you find your child with a photo of exactly what your child looks like today; wearing the clothes that they were wearing when they first disappeared into the crowd. When I travel into a crowded place with my family, the first thing I do is snap a quick picture of my daughter with my phone cam. That way, if the unthinkable does happen, I won't have to think. I can email the ...

Now that's Semantic Web(?)
Danny pointed out SemaView's new calendar based product, Sherba, congratulating them on a ...winning application of SemWeb technologies. The company is using the iCal RDF Schema to create a windows-based application to manage and share event information through an interconnected calendaring system. My first reaction when I saw "window-based application" is to wince at the use of semantic web to what sounded like another Groove-like product that just happens to use RDF/XML for the data. Or does it? According to the developer documentation, though the...

The Seer Sees: Week 9 of the NFL The Seer is rolling with a 57-40 record, good for a 58.8% winning percentage against the spread. What will Week 9 bring? Giants @ Jets, Giants by 1.5 The Jets are getting better each week, while the Giants may have saved their season last week against the Vikings. The Giants were an offensive dynamo outside the Red Zone last week, but Kerry Collins played like a stiff down by the endzones. This will be a very close game between two teams fighting to stay in the race. The loser's in bad shape in the playoff race. The Seer Sees: Giants cover Jaguars @ Ravens, Ravens by 6.5 Byron Leftwich has struggled with throwing too many interceptions this season, and the Jags are currently looking like a team that will have a top three pick in the draft next year. Baltimore hasn't been great this year, but as rookie QB Kyle Boller continues to grow, they could be a dangerous team come playoff time. Still, this is a large spread for a team that features primarily a ...

PDC ASP.NET Panel Discussion - Non-Postback Callbacks to Pages
A new feature in Whidbey will allow controls to make calls directly back to page methods without making full postbacks. This features uses XMLHTTP behind the scenes and allows controls to talk to the server in an optimized fashion without requiring a full postback. In the 1.x timeframe, a solution for this which you can use today (and which actually may be simpler to implement based on what I've seen), is remote scripting. Remote scripting was available in ASP 3.x but wasn't widely known to most ASP developers. Jonathan Cogley of AspAlliance has written up a toolkit that makes implementing cross-browser remote scripting (non-postback callbacks to the server) very easy to implement in ASP.NET, including 1.x.

Shoot cu.rn like a por.n star with these pills!
So, I've been increasingly amused by the alternate spellings in spam subject lines. Like this one: "Shoot cu.rn like a por.n star with these pills!" It's brilliant to substitute "rn" for "m," and that's why people are cooler than computers and email is screwed forever.

Dinner with Dina and Friends.
It felt like an acid trip and swings in blood sugar and the five seconds of a family reunion that are sheer delight. Stuart Henshall, always gracious, hosted Dina Mehta at Boobo di Beppy where staple busting portions stun you with their fat content. More on the restaurant later. We talked about Skype, blog uptake, and other things until I realized that I was at the social scientists' table. Michele Chang is an ubicomp goddess researcher. Dina is a behaviorist. danah boyd (no caps for typographical balance) is getting doctored in social network behavior. Denise Cheskin comes at behavior from a marketing view, and I'm a demoblographer (I blog demography) and labor market analyst. Clynton Taylor is a full tyme ethnographer for business (from where do I know him?). And Stuart has x-ray vision when it comes to models, business and management models I mean.
