Web Apps - IP and Privacy

March 3, 2008

At FOWA, the speakers talked about Ruby on Rails; inter-op; open social; cloud computing; Google Gears and Amazon S3. They emphasized API's and keeping it simple. Leah Culver spoke about API's consuming data and API's to view the mashed up data. But the one thing missing in all this, was the IP.

FOWA wrap-up

March 3, 2008

FOWA ended on Saturday, but I skipped the Beach Day events to start the 6 hour drive home. Our last taste of FOWA was the party at Nikki's Beach Club. Scrapblog's sponsorship was noon-intrusive. Signage plus a flash presentation on a screen. Lots of networking.

FOWA Miami

February 29, 2008

I will be blogging today from the Future of Web Apps conference in Miami.

The opening remarks point out that applications sometimes are designed by accident, like Twitter. It is a side project with no obvious need or reason. (I have seen this in science as well.

FOWA: Nokia night

February 29, 2008

We didn't make it to BarCampMiami, but we did get here in time for the Nokia party at Delores/Lolita Restaurant. Nokia gave a demo of their N and S60 models. You could hardly hear the speaker. The room set-up meant that most people could not see the screen.

Sprinting Where?

February 29, 2008

Rumor has it that Qwest is talking to VZW to replace Sprint. Is this just a play to make Sprint negotiate? Or is this just another sign that Sprint's troubles have become unmanageable? Yesterday, Sprint announced that it would take a $29.5B write down for Nextel.

Widgets, Back-up, and stuff

February 25, 2008

This is a little off topic, but since I have spent 2 days restoring my laptop after a Windows Update issue gone bad, I figured I would share some nifty widgets.

Backup your data. SD cards are 4GB and cost $30. That's where I keep my Outlook pst file now.

The FCC's Agenda

February 25, 2008

I get a headache trying to figure out the FCC (Federal Communications Commission). First, it works diligently to UN-Regulate the RBOCs and to re-create not on, but two, Ma Bells. Then it orders states to give franchise deals to the Ma Bells to hasten triple-play. For the sake of competition, FCC Chair Kevin Martin (herein refered to as K-Mart) says.

C-Beyond Expectations

February 22, 2008

Rich pointed out Cbeyond's 4th Q financials and they are amazing!

Highlights include:

  • 4th quarter net earnings = $12.5 million due to quarterly sales rising 31% to $76.9 million!
  • Cbeyond now has 35,041 customers in the 9 markets it has operations in; that's net 1754 customer adds this quarter, which is about 65 clients per metro per month!
  • ARPU is $750, up a dollar.
  • Mobile penetration = 24%

Cbeyond CEO Geiger did warn that the slowing economy might affect numbers the next 2 quarters, but they are watching their credit process and receivables. Cbeyond opens Miami this quarter. Minneapolis = the 11th market.

March is Road Trip Month

February 21, 2008

Lots of travel the next 7 weeks.

  • VoiceCon is in Orlando on March 17-20.
  • An ISP association is meeting in Orlando on March 20.
  • I'll have copies of my book with me every where I go

The one show I am skipping is CompTel. Why?
