Dvorak Likes Shrink Wrap

July 14, 2008

In a recent column in PC Mag, An Ode to Shrink Wrapped Software, John Dvorak talks about the ten weaknesses of online apps. It really comes down to this: "Using the Internet to return to the old model of mainframe computing is a misuse of resources and a dead end."

Everything else he says just comes back to either the model sucks or the security / reliability stinks. His argument is really about Control.

PCI Compliance

July 7, 2008

Elizabeth Bowles at Aristotle.Net gave a session on e-Commerce that included some PCI DSS stuff. PCI DSS is like HIPAA in a lot of ways: buzz but no one has a handle on it. There's more myth than fact, but who is going to sift through the hundreds of pages of law?

In most of these laws (HIPAA, PCI, SOX) it is a matter of securing data.

More Communications Apps

June 27, 2008

BlitzTime takes social networks one step further. One of the downsides to connecting with people on LinkedIn is that you can't easily communicate with them. With BlitzTime you set up a profile, including education, interests, etc., then log in, join an event, or start one of your own - thus able to have a conference call with people you might want to meet.

More Conference calling apps are popping up.
