Of Wine, Pastries and Satellite Imagery

June 25, 2006

France: Home of fine wine, great food and now -- satellite imagery second to none. Or second to Google, depending on your perspective.

The French are no fans of Google -- they see it as a way of further losing control over their culture. This may be why this announcement makes sure to inform us that this new website has more detail of the French territory than Google Earth.
At the moment I can't verify this fact because if you go to this new portal you get the following message:

Vous êtes incroyablement nombreux à vous connecter au Géoportail, portail des territoires et des citoyens depuis sa mise en ligne. Nous avons enregistré plusieurs millions de connexions en quelques heures.

Catching up

June 21, 2006

With all my travel lately I have been neglecting my blogging. I figured I would get right back into the swing of things with some links to interesting articles.

You hear me discuss building communities all the time. Well Electronic Arts has decided to purchase Mythic a company devoted to massively multi-player games. The trend towards community building continues to grow across industries and boundaries.

In an effort to increase internet security levels, eBay (I am a shareholder btw) and others have begun to urge Congress for better privacy laws.

Moore’s Law

June 12, 2006

Good news from Intel for fans of Moore’s Law -- Researchers have found a way to cut chip power consumption by 35 percent.

Using tri-gate transistors is the key.

"Compared to carbon nanotubes, it is far easier to build," said Mike Mayberry, director of components research and vice president of Intel's Technology and Manufacturing Group. "The problem with carbon nanotubes is that no one knows how to put them in a particular spot except by moving them one at a time. Even our smallest chips have millions of transistors, so that is an insurmountable challenge, he continued."

A tri-gate transistor is a component in the standard CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) design, but acts as a better "traffic cop" to control the flow of electrons, surrounding each wire on three sides instead of just one.

To Akron, Atlanta and Back

May 18, 2006


I had a fun but tiring trip from LaGuardia Airport to Akron, Ohio to Atlanta, GA and back home. I got to fly on AirTran to Ohio and was dreading flying on this airline. For some reason I associate the airline with budget crappy service. Big mistake.
