DaveNet: Linux.UserLand.Com. Philosophy, roadmap.
New website: Linux.UserLand.Com. Our lab for Linux work.
Our first step is to get a solid XML-RPC implementation on Linux. We've been working in the Zope environment with the Python scripting language.
This morning I interviewed Digital Creations CEO Paul Everitt on the connection between Zope and Frontier thru XML-RPC.
We're publishing source code and tutorials to show people how to use their Mac and Windows skills to deploy scalable applications on Linux. Our focus is on building systems that leverage the advantages of all platforms. We don't have an allegiance to any individual platform. We don't want to see Microsoft or Apple lose. We just want to make great servers and web writing environments and help others do the same. No fear!
Thanks to PythonWare for an excellent XML-RPC foundation. And thanks to Digital Creations for their help and support. The XML-RPC additions will be integrated into the next release of Zope, which is open source, which we happily support.
Fortune: "The 7:30 a.m. chatter at Buck's of Woodside--the Silicon Valley breakfast mecca for venture capitalists and entrepreneurs--is all about patents and game plans. Marty Walker, a founder of Frequency Technology, fits right in. He's explaining how his company will change the world. Or at least the world of microchip design."
InfoWorld.Com has a new look. Very confusing! I used to be able to scroll down the home page till I hit a visited link and then hit the Back button. I wish they'd do a channel, I'm already getting used to browsing the web thru My.UserLand.Com. And getting ideas for new things we can do with the story-flow. How about a table that showed the stories in reverse-chronologic order with a link to the channel we got it from. It would be a super-aggregate channel. But I wandered a little off topic. Back to work!
