Is this Johannesburg - or L.A.?
We've been in South Africa for more than a week now, and it's a bit less "exotic" than I expected. In fact, at least once a day my wife, Jen, and I say, "This could be L.A.!" With its 6-lane...

Hosting the CLR panel notes
Put the Power Inside: Hosting the CLR in Your Application Track: Panels Code: PNL07 Room: Room501ABC Time Slot: Thu, October 30 10:30 AM-12:00 PM Speakers: Andrew Murchison, Christopher Brown, Christopher Brumme, Dmitry Robsman, Jose Blakeley, Mahesh Prakriya, Mark Alcazar, Sean Trowbridge, Thomas Quinn Expose the power of managed code to your customers by using the CLR as your host for scripting and automation. Join experts from the CLR, SQL Server and "Longhorn" design teams to hear their experiences hosting the CLR in SQL Server "Yukon" and Windows "Longhorn." Pick their brains on how to enhance your own application's programming model by integrating the CLR languages including C#, Visual Basic .NET, and Managed C++. This panel was for hosting the CLR in a process. It includes folks from SQL Server, DB2, Asp.Net, VS.net, the Windows Shell, etc. A lot of folks seemed simply confused about how to load managed code or how to write pieces of their application using managed (should ...

Don Box deletes Powerpoint, takes notes in code
After the fun PDC Session where the Indigo Panel sings "Give Soap a Chance", Don is giving a talk which is his "last chance" to talk to us all. Since he has no powerpoint anymore ( it was deleted last session in a fit of power-point overload rage) he is taking notes in code. I like it, this is very succinct: /* Indigo Connector = {Port, Channel, Message, Service}; */ Giving the concept that the Indigo connector model consists of only four concepts. Can you guess what they are?

Revisited: Developing for the Tablet PC, on the Tablet PC!
I was just cleaning up some old junk from my sad, neglected little blog (hey, I've been busy lately -- don't you folks have jobs?) and I stumbled across an entry I wrote about 9 months ago, questioning the idea of developing for the Tablet PC, on a Tablet PC. I had to laugh out loud, because since then I actually won an Acer Travelmate, and I find I use it as my primary development machine. No kidding! Sure, the keyboard is small -- but at home and in the office I use a full-sized wireless keyboard/mouse rig. Sure, the screen is small -- but it's clear and bright, and again, at home I keep it tucked in an Oyster USB docking rig (highly recommended, by the way). Sure, the chip is slow -- but I don't have much time for games anymore, and I find that anywhere above about 900 MHz on x86, compiling and debugging doesn't really seem to be CPU-bound anymore. I tend to eschew the mouse in favor the of the keyboard, when at all possible -- but I've found the digitizer pen to be very handy ...

BizMov: Bowling for Columbine
An alternately humorous and horrifying documentary about firearms abuse in the United States. Director Michael Moore sets off on a rollicking journey to the heart of the country hoping to discover why the American pursuit of happiness is so riddled with violence. From a look at the Columbine High School security camera tapes to the home of Oscar®-winning NRA President Charlton Heston, from a young man who makes homemade napalm with The Anarchist's Cookbook to the murder of a six-year-old girl by another six-year-old, Bowling for Columbine is a powerful piece of filmmaking that will resonate with audiences dreading -- but expecting -- the next breaking news report about a homegrown assassin with a constitutionally-protected Uzi.

Thesauruses? Thesauri?
I was in Chapters yesterday and posted in the Dictionary section was this sign: "Dictionaries and Thesauri". Thesauri is the plural to thesaurus? That's the weirdest thing I've ever heard. I guess I've never thought about it but... maybe I would say Thesauruses or Thesaurusi. Although, that seems bizarre too. I'll just avoid using the plural of Thesaurus altogether. How often are there more than one (besides in a book store)? Even more shocking is that the Bizwarcho spell check didn't pick up Thesauruses as a misspelled word. Strange. Conspiracy?

Require Dot Gov
All governments should stop playing around with their URLs and adhere to a dot gov standard. Here's a recent example of a problem that could occur: A state agency was using a dot com URL and then converted to dot gov, dropping the old URL. A porn company purchased the URL and now all the links that used to point to that agency now point to a porn site. Dot gov URLs are controlled and represent official status. There is no way to ensure that dot com URLs that sound like they may be government sites, such as www.utahstategovernment.com are what they proclaim to be. So if you've made the mistake of using dot org or dot com, I would suggest that you fix it and get a dot gov URL. If you are in the state of Utah, and are a county or a city, you can obtain a utah.gov URL through Al Sherwood in the state CIO's office. Rory Perry refers to this slideshow that assesses each of the 50 state judicial websites. It might be a good idea for enterprise architects everywhere to learn Danish so that ...

Americans Love Guns
So I watched Michael Moore's Bowling for Columbine. We need more of those kinds of films; ones that expose the truths of life that we try so hard to forget. So we're talking about firearms, and murder rates in different countries around the world. Why are there so many people murdered by guns in America and not in Canada? Michael Moore's theory: fear. Americans are scared. Why are they scared? Because they're told not to trust their fellow man. Who tells them this? The News. This is something that is blatantly obvious. I lived in Buffalo for 8 months and I couldn't believe the difference between the new reports even just over the border. A Typical American News Report: Who's being bombed by the States overseas. Statement by the President justifying it. Hold up at a Bank/Convenience Store. Gang shootings. Murder/suicide. Accidental child death by gun/neglect. Health report about obesity followed by a Burger King commercial. Why Burger King rules the world. Why America rules the ...

"Blog Cafe" Opens in Tehran
Iran is the first country I know of to open a cafe dedicated to bloggers: Cafe Blog. Blogging has really taken off in Iran, especially in the capital, Tehran. I'm quite proud that I can actually read most of the text. The introductory post says "Cafe Blog is a coffee shop like all other coffee shops. French Nescafe coffee, cappuccino, milkshakes, orange juice, cheese, ... and 34 tables. Why 'Cafe Blog'? ..." On the right-hand menu it says "Programs going on this month" with some courses in HTML. Photos of the opening are online but you might be surprised. The idea is rather interesting: it's not an internet cafe where you go and blog while drinking tea. Instead, it's a regular cafe that caters to the type of people in Tehran that would be blogging. In Tehran, this is actually useful because bloggers (and people who know about blogging) are a distinct subculture in Tehran and, in a place where government restriction stifles many forms of personal expression, these people need to ...

TV done
It's done. It will be broadcasted on monday in two weeks. I didn't find anything interesting or funny to say, except maybe the part when I imagine Steve Jobs emailing me: "I thought you were brilliant, Olivier. That's shit. You can do much better." We also did a little scene: when entering, the interviewer expects to meet the real Steve Jobs, although he doubts he lives on the Plateau. Then, he sees me, looks at a Steve Jobs' photo, looks at me again, I look at the photo, tries to smile...
