Nielsen Norman Group Names Best Intranets for 2010
Nielsen Norman Group has announced winners in their 11th annual contest for best intranets for 2010. In the announcement Usability expert Jakob Nielsen was quoted, "If there's anything that has been overused, abused and hyped almost beyond the level of cliché, it's ‘knowledge management.' It might therefore be better to say that the winners in this year's intranet design contest were very strong in ‘managing knowledge' on their intranets. Employees are the ultimate knowledge resource, and the winning intranets provided features to transform their behavior into manageable knowledge.

Why Developers Should Be Building For Android Tablets
OK, maybe Steve Jobs' reality distortion field is wearing off a bit and I might feel differently in a week when I get my iPad 2, but after playing with my Motorola Xoom a lot more tonight and seeing just what "no apps" looks like, I got something to say to developers: You should build for Android. Before you build for iPad.

rPath Supports The New Dynamic And Cloud-based Vision For IT
A major transformation is occurring with enterprise IT services. I recently spoke with Jake Sorofman, CMO at rPath, to get his perspective on these changes. Jake pointed out that IT used to have a local monopoly on IT services. Their internal customers were forced to accept poor service levels because they had no alternative. Now the Cloud is fast becoming and alternative channel.  Instead of waiting weeks or months for a critical application, business managers can simply license and deploy many applications in minutes. Instead of incurring massive implementation costs prior to any performance, they can just lease apps on a monthly basis and stop at any time.

Broken C++: Old Compilers
Up until recently I've only had to deal with standard-compliant C++. I've pretty much enjoyed writing C++ code that abides by an accepted and well-defined standard. This means I have been for the most part using most of the standard features of the Standard Template Library. That changed most recently when I had to deal older versions of compilers which did not support standard C++, and thus I felt the pain that most others have had to deal with a while back.

Oh government.. when will they get it? I was interested in a recent news item here in our region where once again local Government workers are under pressure for spending… this time the locals are ticked off because thy are coming of age and connecting themselves with iPads.

In this day of open government, accountability, and social engagement, politicians being connected with the latest gadgets has to be a good thing I would think. I'm also all for government workers using the latest technology.
