AJaX: Two steps forward... Two steps back?

March 20, 2005

(From www.java.net)

Day one of TSSJS has been a mix of wow! and doh!


Like Ed, I've been intrigued by the promise of AJaX, but when I consider it in a wider context I'm a bit concerned.

The basic message of AJaX is that modern browsers, through a combination of JavaScript and XmlHttpRequest, provide an advanced client that allows you to write rich client interfaces without the need to deploy a plugin.

So far so good, but when you look at the mechanisms that are currently available to take advantage of AJaX, a boatload of JavaScript embedded in an HTML file, you will probably experience a sickening feeling of deja vu all over again.

AJaX totally blows the idea of seperating presentation markup and code snippets.



Dangling Broadband From the Phone Stick

March 19, 2005

I spent some time in Starbucks today and didn't have my laptop. Half of me felt about as guilty as a human being can feel because I have a T-Mobile hotspot subscription and I could actually feel the WiFi passing through me. I had lots of ideas to blog but I had no outlet.

So I did what other people seem to do when they have no broadband access, I picked up a New York Times and started reading. I came across a story that confirms something I have been writing about for a while.

The implications for companies like Microsoft could be huge if the tremendous interest in this technology continues.

I’ve met with Epygi executives on numerous occasions and have always been impressed with their knowledge of web technology… Not just VoIP but Internet technology like RSS feeds, etc. It came as no surprise to see that the company pioneered a new way of advertising. Before reading this release I happened upon their Selecting VoIP Solutions channel on TMCnet and noticed their ads are amazing. If you mouse over one, you have a window into what appears to be their entire website.

Xten Record Growth

March 18, 2005

Here is an indicator of the strong sales growth being seen in the VoIP space. Interestingly in my keynote in Dallas yesterday I mentioned SIP connectivity to PBXs and someone in the front row held up his iPAQ with the Xten soft client on it as an example. Now I get this release:

Xten Networks, Inc. (OTCBB: XNWK), a provider of award-winning VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), Video over IP, Instant Messaging (IM), and Presence SIP softphones, today reported financial results for the third quarter ended January 31, 2005.
