Adobe is open sourcing the remoting and messaging technologies in its
commercial LiveCycle Data Services ES - Adobe's route to the Internet - as a
new product called BlazeDS.
The widgetry, along with the Action Message Format (AMF) protocol
specification, is being sent into the wild under the Lesser General Public
License (LGPL v3), making Adobe the first major company to use the
little-used new license.
Public betas are out at labs.adobe.com.
Adobe says that with BlazeDS developers can add data connectivity to RIAs for
real-time collaboration and data-push capabilities that enable better
decision-making and more engaging user experiences like guided self-service,
live help, performance monitoring and incident tracking. They can also
connect rich clients to existing server applications, including Java and
Adobe ColdFusion components.
Adobe will offer LiveCycle Data... (more)
This is not the first time Jobs is having hissy fit over Macworld and its
producer IDG World Expo. A few years ago when a genius IDG guy decided to
move Macworld Expo East from New York City to Boston to save a few bucks,
Steve Jobs was reportedly on the phone cursing every letter in the alphabet,
and threatening to pull out of Macworld. At that time Jobs and IDG kissed and
made up. I don’t know what happened today for Jobs to lose it and declare
Apple is done with the Macworld Expo again. I don’t believe Apple can
afford to do what they announced today, their decision to kill M... (more)

Today I arrived in Bodrum for a long weekend. Divan Palmira kindly declined
my reservation request after my 2007 review of the hotel. They were nice
enough to recommend another boutique hotel in the area, so I checked in to
Maca Kizi Hotel. My first half day here so far, the view from my room is
fantastic. It is too early to write a formal review but if they don't royally
screw it up between now and Sunday morning, this hotel has a potential to me
my Bodrum summer stop going forward.
Today it rained here. I see it rain in Bodrum for the first time since... (more)

When I landed in Athens, Greece, on Sunday, October 13, 2007, the last thing
on my mind was writing a blog entry about high-tech public relations, until I
heard from a PR agent on the day of my arrival. In the past 10 days or so
we have been working with her on a breaking news story that is currently
under NDA. I was so impressed with her professionalism and her passion for
perfection that yesterday I posted a blog entry, recommending the agency she
works for, to technology companies that are searching for a highly qualified
public relations firm.
Within minutes of my blog entry,... (more)
