It seems the real bloggers of the world -- well, at least the ones that get read or have their URLs forwarded from friend to friend to colleague to associate -- post something new nearly every day. Too few postings and people aren't interested. Too many, and the quality clearly suffers. So there is a sweet spot in there someplace.
But where do they find the time?
I was chatting with Allie, the mad genius behind pajunas interactive the other evening, and she mentioned her search for a second network operations center for her business. Not that the current data center where her servers are located is bad (they're ISO-9000 and ex-military perfectionists, really), but rather nobody is perfect and contingencies are always good to plan for. I got to thinking about the whole end to end business of providing web content to end users.
The Parallels Desktop looks like it might be just what the doctor ordered for users who want to get away from the many annoyances of Microsoft Windows, or for the Mac zealots who just need to run the one or two Windows-only applications. It's also possibly the best thing since sliced bread for software developers who want to develop in the Mac OS environment, but need to test on other Intel platforms. Parallels doesn't just provide a way to run Windows. One can virtualize FreeBSD, Linux, Solaris and even OS/2.
I don't know if the lack of comments up to this point was because nobody cared, or because of a software problem. I found the software problem myself when I tried to leave my own comment. I guess that's what happens when one uses the tip of the development branch of software just before the 4.7 release of Drupal. I've now upgraded to 4.7, and all appears well, including the comments.
So perhaps someone will do that. Or not. :-) This is admittedly among the least exciting blogs on the planet.
"Net neutrality" is a concept that most Americans don´t know about. It´s essentially the First Amendment for the Internet -- allowing Web users to go where they want and do what they please online. This standard is why the Internet has become a revolutionary force for economic innovation and new ideas.
Large cable and telephone companies are planning to do away with Net Neutrality. They´re asking Congress to pass legislation that allows them to control which Web sites get priority over everything else and which ones are left behind.
