And ya! Lufthansa is going to provide internet connections in their cross continental flights..

+                             Peter Coffee of <a href="http://www.eweek.com">eWeek</a> has published a <a href="http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1764716,00.asp">very positive review</a> of <a href="http://www.sun.com/software/products/jsenterprise/index.xml">Java Studio Enterprise 7</a>.  
+<blockquote>
+Sun's Java Studio Enterprise 7 is an impressively complete and smoothly
+integrated package for building Java applications in team environments,
+with unique and useful IM capabilities tailored to developers' needs.
+Its interaction among code and diagram views is unsurpassed.
+</blockquote>
+
+In particular, he praised JSE's unique developer collaboration features:
+<blockquote>
+Teams may become addicted to Sun's development-oriented instant messaging facility, with a syntax-aware editor and collaborative editing tools integrated into the workbench. Long listings or outputs can be sent, without the message-length restrictions that hamper lightweight IM systems.
+<p>
+When another developer is editing a shared file, affected lines are highlighted and guarded in other team members' windows to prevent collisions while enabling simultaneous work in different sections of the code. Sun officials promise to expand support for XMPP (Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol)-based run-times; messaging security can be configured using HTTPS (HTTP Secure) and SOCKS Version 5. The system is easy to use and could quickly make converts of those who've never before found IM compelling.
+</blockquote>
+
+Peter didn't mention all the cool developer collaboration features, so check out <a href="http://wcdata.sun.com/webcast/archives/GSN-1924/index.html">my developer collaboration webinar</a> for the skinny, including a demo (the demo starts about 20 minutes in).

+The best part of any day for me is the opportunity to spend time in
+1-on-1 conversation with one of my three boys or my daughter. Although,
+given that the latter is only 18 mo. old those conversations typically
+involve a lot of babbling and rasberries. (Some would say that is the
+content of most of my conversations). Anyway, I had the chance tonight
+to chat with my 8 year old son about girls and books. We were driving back
+from the post office in the truck and the conversation <span style="font-style: italic;">just happened</span>.
+<br>
+<br>
+He asked me about the best books I read at his age. I couldn't remember
+all the way back to elementary school but I do recall the three books
+that made the greatest impact on me in junior high. They started my
+habit which currently consists of about 250 pages a week (beats the
+hell out of a pack a day). They are <span class="sans"><a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0345347536/qid=1108521104/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl14/104-2933809-5688726?v=glance&amp;s=books&amp;n=507846">A Spell for Chameleon by Piers Anthony</a>, <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0345314255/qid=1108521208/sr=1-2/ref=sr_1_2/104-2933809-5688726?v=glance&amp;s=books">The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks</a>, and <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0261103288/qid=1108521248/sr=1-5/ref=sr_1_5/104-2933809-5688726?v=glance&amp;s=books">The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien</a>. Once I read these I was hooked and I've been an avid reader ever since. As for my favorite book of all time it's <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0812550706/qid=1108521352/sr=2-1/ref=pd_ka_b_2_1/104-2933809-5688726">Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card</a>.
+<br>
+<br>
+Just as was the case this evening with my son, I often find that the
+very best conversations <span style="font-style: italic;">just happen</span>. Whether it's in the office, truck,
+or home there is an amazing number of opportunities to be touched by
+those around you and touch them. It's part of what makes my job as a manager at
+Sun so enjoyable. Life and conversations need to <span style="font-style: italic;">just happen</span> more often.<br>
+<br>
+As for girls, I won't bore you with the details of that conversation,
+other than to note that we came to the conclusion that the purpose of
+ponytails is <span style="font-weight: bold;">not</span>
+to be pulled by little 8 yr old boys. We think it has something to do
+with either keeping hair out of the way or looking pretty. We're not
+exactly sure so we're going to ask mom.<br>

+I guess this is a blurb about <em>discovery</em>, <em>awareness</em>, and <em>reminiscing</em>.<br />
+<P><br />
+<em>A little history...</em><br><br />
+Having been introduced to IM by friends/colleagues more than 8 years ago, my first exposure to IM was simply &#8220;a cool add-on tool for sharing simple messages with friends&#8220;.  I never suspected something so simple would become such an important collaboration tool.  I should&#8216;ve seen it coming though, you know the old saying, &#8220;Simple is Better&#8221;.  Before <span class="caps">SPAM</span> got out of control, before it took 3 hours for your email to reach someone due to <span class="caps">SPAM</span> and Virus filters, email response time in general was acceptable (<em>for those readers who've been using email since the inception of the internet, I'm aware this may be stretching the truth, but I'm referring to a time before the marketing folks hadn't yet crippled the bandwidth</em> <img src="/roller/images/smileys/laugh.gif" class="smiley" alt="<img src="/roller/images/smileys/smile.gif" class="smiley" alt=":)" title=":)">)" title="<img src="/roller/images/smileys/smile.gif" class="smiley" alt=":)" title=":)">)">.<br />
+<P><br />
+IM was cool, but there was simply no burning need for real-time messaging.  Why load another application when turnaround on email correspondence was respectable (slight exaggeration), not like today where it sometimes takes days to get a response (not much of an exaggeration).  Phones, pagers, and cell phones didn&#8216;t up and disappear either, so if you really needed to communicate with someone <strong>NOW</strong>, you had options.<br />
+<P><br />
+The more you break something in however (like great jeans and new sneakers), the better something gets.  I quickly changed my tune on the subject, and became an advocate.  I enlisted as many folks as I could, basically to make <strong>MY</strong> job easier.  The sooner I was able to communicate with people, the faster I could get stuff done (the fact that I&#8216;m easily distracted is another story entirely, but I digress)....<br />
+<P><br />
+Now, to say that IM was pain free would be a lie.  We had 1) firewall/proxy issues to bear; 2)lack of acceptance from Sr. Management; and 3) the onslaught of security concerns over unencrypted traffic flow between public and private enterprise networks.  As we conquered these concerns one by one (sometimes with band-aids and end-arounds <img src="/roller/images/smileys/wink.gif" class="smiley" alt=";)" title=";)">), IM blazed forth with Crusades-like efficiency, brute force converting all the heathens and forcing adoption across the enterprise.  IM permeated itself throughout not only our organization, but throughout the rest of corporate America as well.<br />
+<P><br />
+Anyways, as far as IM clients went, like most folks, I went from dabbling with <span class="caps">ICQ</span> to incorporating <span class="caps">AIM </span>(AOL&#8216;s Instant Messenger) into my daily routine.  After a brief flirtation with Yahoo and <span class="caps">MSN </span>(heaven help me), which led to poor response  times and latency issues, I inevitably went back to <span class="caps">AIM</span>.  On a suggestion from a friend I tried Trillian for a while, but I always had problems with Trillian&#8216;s Yahoo client and proxy support, so I again went back to <span class="caps">AIM</span>.  A couple of <span class="caps">AIM</span> add-ons, a few <span class="caps">AIM</span> plugins here and there, and now I&#8216;m basically back to Trillian cause they finally fixed the Yahoo proxy support issue.  If you&#8216;re curious, give it a try at : <a href="http://www.trillian.cc">http://www.trillian.cc</a><br />
+<P><br />
+Trillian won&#8216;t work with Linux, so under <span class="caps">JDS I</span> stick with <span class="caps">AIM</span>&#8216;s Linux Client, but the client options can vary if you&#8216;re bored.  On Linux/Unix we&#8216;ve got <span class="caps">AIM</span>, GAIM, Tik, and browser based <span class="caps">AIM </span>(only in a pinch).  Alternatives to <span class="caps">AIM</span> on Linux start with Jabber, which is an Open Source IM solution and the defacto Linux IM standard.  There&#8216;s a bunch of client options under Linux if you&#8216;re willing to sift through the Google results.<br />
+<P><br />
+So here we are, 8 years later, a father of 3, witnessing my kids, nieces, nephews, and even my parents (feeling a little dizzy here) riding the IM wave (on PC&#8216;s and now cell phones), I&#8216;d thought I&#8216;d tried them all.  All but the neat little IM product we&#8216;ve got here at Sun, which will be the subject of :<br />

+One of contemporary British art's most celebrated sculptures has met a
+gruesome end - all over 
+<a href="http://www.biography.com/find/article.jsp?aid=9468614&search=">Charles Saatchi's</a>
+kitchen floor. 
+<a href="http://www.sculpture.org.uk/biography/MarcQuinn">Marc Quinn's</a>
+Self (1991), a model of his head made of nine pints of his own frozen
+blood, melted after someone turned off the freezer where Saatchi kept
+the work.
+<p>
+Seems that Saatchi's new partner, 
+<a href="http://www.nigella.com/">Nigella Lawson</a>, Britain's best-known
+celebrity cook and author, had recently moved in with Saatchi, and had
+the builders in to remodel the kitchen.
+<blockquote>
+<p>
+"They got to work on the old kitchen, ripping out the units," says a source
+in the London art world, "and they pulled the plug on the freezer. Next
+thing they knew, Quinn's blood was on the kitchen floor. Saatchi was furious 
+when he came home and found the mess.
+</blockquote>
+<p>
+No kidding.
+<p>
+I couldn't find the article I read online, but there were several
+other places where it was reported, including
+<a href="http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2002/07/03/1025667010215.html?oneclick=true">this</a> 
+one from <a href="http://www.smh.com.au/index.html">smh.com.au</a>
+<p>
+What I found fascinating was the estimated worth of this piece of
+art. Saatchi bought Self in 1991 for 23,000 pounds ($35,000). 
+It was recently (as in 2002) valued at 1.5 million pounds ($2.3 million).

+                             <br>Progress has been made somewhat in backing up my message forum in preperation to move it to a new server.<br>
+The largest table called 'post' still refuses to be backed up by phpMyadmin and such other mySql programs like SQLyog are reporting errors when trying to back it up. I believe that it is either too large or some time out is occurring. Within phpMyadmin, the table times out almost immediately, not giving the file dialog box. Effectively it fails to start even collating the table data for transfer. Other smaller tables work fine.<br><br>
+I can do a complete SQLdump, but as the 'from' server is a shared hosting platform with no SSH or telnet access, the Control Panel limits what I can do.<br>
+Next on the agenda is how can I extract a specific table from a complete dump and import it via phpMyadmin control panel.<br>
+My hosting company are not responding to any phone calls or emails, so no joy trying to ask for help.<br><br>
+Any ideas welcomed !<br>

+                             Well, I've decided to compete for Hal Stern's Award for CEC in a way.  I will attending CEC as a Speaker Of Great Things; two of my submissions were accepted and I will be talking until my voice fades into the pacific sunset.<p>
+
+My first discussion will center around TLS in Native LDAP, LDAP as a Naming Service, etc.  When I first encountered the references to TLS, I was equally confused and I plan to de-mystify it as best as I can:<br>
+
+1. Short history and definition of TLS and SSL<br>
+2. The TLS "handshake"<br>
+3. Certificates and Trusts and terminology;<br>
+4. StartTLS review<br>
+5. Step-by-Step Configuration of Directory Server 5.2 and Solaris 8/9 and TLS<br>
+6. Other TLS things<P>
+
+My second discussion will center around PAM (Pluggable Authentication Modules) in Native LDAP, LDAP as a Naming Service, etc.  I am still confused, but I will share my troubles and lessons:<br>
+
+1. Name Switching Service (nss), what uses it and how it plays a role;<br>
+2. PAM defined: services, modules, stacks, authentication versus authentication versus authentication;<br>
+3. PAM tags: required -- requisite -- binding -- server_policy -- try_first_pass -- use_first_pass;<br>
+4. Why authenticate using pam_unix and pam_ldap (very simply) -- password management;<br>
+5. Virtual walkthrough of a PAM "stack"<P>
+
+I plan not to talk to the slides, and I plan to have detailed takeways and not just a slide show.<p>
+
+All in all, 30 minutes for each and an hour for the session for the two days. Are you excited yet?<p>
+
+And I had better follow this up with some blogspam for the next few days<p>

+Aaaaah the rush of it.  The pure adrenaline rush of standing naked in front of a crowd of people.  OK, so maybe not naked, but alone and the center of attention anyway.  Briefing customers is always a thrill, with endless excitement waiting for the plethora of twisty <a href=http://www.consumerfreedom.com/news_detail.cfm/headline/500>leaps of logic</a> and questions from the <a href=http://www.bsboards.com/>blindside</a>.  
+<p>
+Sidenote, being from a datacenter management background, thrills and excitement are generally a bad thing.  In my world, thrills and excitement are usually accompanied by an unflattering story on <a href=http://www.cnn.com>CNN</a> and <a href=http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/0,4621,302964,00.html>24 hour workdays</a>.
+<p>
+In my jaded career, I have written <a href=http://www.sun.com/blueprints/0600/prodeng.pdf>papers</a> and <a href=http://www.sun.com/books/catalog/cockcroft.xml?section=Preface>books</a> on many topics.  That doesn't necessarily mean that I am still a thought leader on those topics, or current on what Sun's strategic or tactical offerings are.  OK, so I hear that I am <a href=http://www.dalecarnegie.com/M10/M10S2-01.jsp?code=PSM>good in front of a crowd</a>, have taught <a href=http://www.sun.com/training/catalog/courses/SA-400.xml>technical classes</a> for years, and I do speak <a href=http://www.engrish.com/>reasonably coherent english</a> for a <a href=http://www.bartleby.com/61/0/G0070000.html>geek</a>.

Of course his talk wasn't really about Los Angeles but about predicting the future, or actually our inability to do so thanks to exponential growth of knowledge. The last <a href="http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=polymath">polymath</a> who understood all the world's knowledge probably lived 400 years ago.

+For those of you who might have noticed, no I didn't get up and walk out from the front row during Kim's presentation to be rude, I was being urgently paged

+5 and 8, set-up LILO, and rebooted to permit a 5 minute install of
+NetBSD 2.0; this necessitated taking great care to not provide any
+bootloader names for the partitions, nor install the NetBSD bootloader
+at all, but aside from staying alert the installation was trivial.
+<P>
+Three down, one to go; I test-booted all the software, let them
+self-check, finishing with a Mandrake boot in which I added:

+...to <tt>/etc/lilo.conf</tt>, mirroring the chain-bootloader entry for
+the WinXP partition. A quick poke with <tt>fdisk</tt> reset the partition
+type for hda2 back to "0x82" - which annoyingly means <i>both</i> "Solaris",
+<i>and</i> "Linux Swap" - and then I rebooted with the Solaris 10 DVD.
+<P>
+It just worked. The Solaris installer did err on the conservative
+side by suggesting I only wanted 256 colours on my 1024x768 display,
+as opposed to my desired 16 million, but that was fixable and otherwise
+the installation of SUNWCall went smoothly - but I won't go so far as to say it
+was a particularly
+<A HREF="http://www.untickalock.com/jakob/jakob_the_movie.swf">pleasurable user-interface experience</A>.
+<P>
+The side-effect of the Solaris install was to blow-away the LILO
+bootloader (how rude) but a quick reboot off the Mandrake DVD in
+"rescue" mode fixed that, since it has a "automatically find a
+Mandrake partition, load the <tt>lilo.conf</tt> and rebuild the boot
+loader" option - <i>very</i> useful.
+<P>
+So: surprisingly, it all works, exactly as you would expect it. My
+laptop is fit to provide me with the X86-based operating systems
+capacity that I'm likely to need for work and play in the near future.
+<P>
+Next: to get a new Powerbook, as an upgrade for the system that lets
+me do what I want to do creatively...<P><a target="dsrss_comment" href="http://www.crypticide.com/dropsafe/articles/gadgets/post20050215190427.comments"><b>[Comment Link for RSS]</b></a>

+
+<p>Traffic to blogs.sun.com has punched through the roof - again, and we had to make some changes
+to our infrastructure to support it. In particular, we've found a few issues in our latest push of roller 
+(the blogging software we use). One was for that little ReadMore link on pages - turns out we were wasting
+*lots* of time in processing the html in those links. Ick.<P>
+
+<p>Thanks to <a href="http://blogs.sun.com/watt/">Watt</a> and of course Dave Johnson for quick work finding the problem and fixing it. Of course, I was online from 8am until about 1:30pm fixing it. I think my team just lets me work on the machines to keep me happy - going from being a hardcore engineer to being an engineering manager is not much fun.</P>
+
+<p>And to keep things interesting - we've just been told we have to move our infrastructure! Yippee! Over 150 machines to move, an emplaced network infrastructure, support transitions, all while publishing 24 hrs a day, 7 days a week, with no down time. Tell me this is going to be fun. Please?</p>

+                             Went and saw <A href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0362270/">"The Life Aquatic"</A> last night at the <A href="http://www.picturepubpizza.com/">Parkway Theater</A> in Oakland.  Monday nights are the blissful insanity known to East Bay-ers as <A href="http://www.picturepubpizza.com/baby/index.html">Baby Brigade</A>.  A godsend to first time parents, if ever there was one. <P>
+In the first place, the theater is not your typical stadium seating McMegaplex, but a simple old-school movie house converted into two spacious theaters.  Each theater has little or none of the traditional theater style seating, choosing instead the comfort of couches and armchairs.  Combine that with <A href="http://www.picturepubpizza.com/menu/">delicious food, beer and wine</A>, and you have a wonderfully unique movie experience.<P>
+Baby Brigade, however, adds the beauty of two shows a week where parents are invited to bring children not yet old enough to walk to the theater.  The place is filled with thirty-something parents grateful for the chance to get out of the house, and infants awed by the new experience presented to them.  As many of you know, the fussy babies are nothing for adults who have been cooped up for a long week with the challenges of first time parenthood.<P>
+It can lead to some humorous moments, however.  For instance, during a particularly quiet early scene in the movie, about eight babies decided to voice their fierce criticism of the pace and mood of the movie.  In what sounded like a cross between a hog calling contest and the sea lions at Fisherman's Wharf, the volume and intensity of their protests grew to the point where parents were laughing more at the surealness of reality than that of the movie.<P>
+I know other theaters in other parts of the Bay Area have done similar "baby nights".  If you have a newborn, or are expecting one, I have to highly recommend these wonderful institutions as a way to stay in touch with your old life.  And if you live in the East Bay, come to the Parkway on Monday Nights and support Baby Brigade.<P>

+                             The Liberty Alliance and OASIS have reached another milestone in their collaborative efforts to drive the convergence of identity standards. Last week, the Liberty Alliance released the public draft of its Identity Web Services Framework (ID-WSF) 2.0 specification, which has been extended to support the OASIS SAML 2.0 specification. SAML 2.0 is expected to be officially ratified as an OASIS standard in March 2005. By leveraging the latest iteration of the ID-WSF framework, developers can use SAML assertions to communicate identity information such as authentication status, user attributes and authorization decisions between identity-based Web service transactions.

It was way to cold for my Northern California body and I  got sick. Nothing like feeling like you been beat with a baseball bat while you are laying in bed in St. Petersburg with -11 outside....it was hard to get motivated to go to work. But alas since I was on Sun official business I did get up and had some wonderful architecture meetings...you will see the results of these meetings in the near future.....so it was worth it!

+Wow! The first World Wide Education and Research Conference was held in 1986 under a tent in the parking lot of the old Mountain View campus. There were about 50 attendees all from the US.  This week's <a href="http://www.sun.com/edu/erc/">conference</a>, being held in San Francisco's St. Francis hotel has 625+ attendees from 47 countries! 
+<p>
+Sun's Vice President of Education and Research, Kim Jones, kicked off today's session talking about the six mega-trends in education,
+<p>
+<li> eLearning
+<li> Portals and Single Sign On
+<li> Streamling of Administrative Systems
+<li> Digital Asset Management
+<li> Collaborative and Grid Computing
+<li> Mobility with Security
+<p>
+It is easy to forget, but according to the <a href="http://www.campuscomputing.net/">Campus Computing Project </a>, in 1994 only 8% of universities provided email as part of their IT infrastructure. Can you imagine a university without email today?

+through a series of loosely related events and text, i was flooded with the thoughts
+of free and
+open source origins of my computing life at york university. no, it was not linux, it was not
+something from MIT or Berkeley, and not a part of the GNU project. they all came <em>later</em>.
+this is a remarkable bit of hardware-specific open-source engineering that all the
+hack "historians" tend to overlook:
+<p>
+Dave Conroy's <a href="http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/academic/computer-science/history/pdp-11/rsx/decus/rsx80a/310113/">
+DECUS C compiler.</a>
+<p>
+this was the first C compiler i ever used for hello, world.
+i did not have a copy of K&R at the time [my first K&R is dated 82], but a printed copy of the
+C reference manual and Kernighan's C tutorial. i think this compiler came to us with the <a href="http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/academic/computer-science/history/pdp-11/rsx/decus/rsx80a">
+1980 RSX11 sig tape</a> or the Torlug tape. it ran fine under our 11/780's compatibility mode
+and remained in use until DEC's native C compiler showed up. [conroy compiler kept going for
+many years after that under pdp-11 thanks to hard work by late <a href="http://www.merrymeet.com/minow/">martin minow</a>. it was the preferred
+compiler for pdp-11
+hackers, so far as i can tell. its latest incarnation can be found in johnny billquist's
+pdp-11 <a href="ftp://ftp.update.uu.se/pub/pdp11">archive</a>.]
+<p>
+all this came to mind after reading a surprising fragment from a foreword by
+larry lessig to <a
+href="http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/isbnInquiry.asp?isbn=0131487876">Open Source Licensing: Software Freedom and Intellectual Property Law</a> [recommended]
+<blockquote>
+<p>
+Why code must be propriatery is a question whose
+answers have changed over the past ten years. At first the reasons
+were technical: <u>no free or open source project, it was said, could
+develop the highly complex and robust code necessary for modern
+software applications.</u> But when the GNU/Linux project began to
+produce an operating system that rivaled Microsoft's in robustness
+and efficiency, this technical
+argument began to fade.

It is always good to read these stories and see what sorta stuff companies are trying to pull on people who are bloging.  I have taken the stance that I am going to talk about what I want and keep the Sun business on topics that I know are safe to talk about... sorry no news leaks here.  It was interesting to read in the <A HREF=http://www.fool.com/News/mft/2005/mft05021502.htm>article</A> about the Delta airline attendant getting canned for bloging.  Make sure you check out <A HREF=http://queenofsky.journalspace.com/>her</A> blog and the happenings now that she has been fired.

+So to all of those bloging out there... Keep it up, but be smart.

+                             <P>I bought a laptop over the weekend for my wife. A valentines day present. It pains me to say this, but it's (currently) running Windows XP. I wanted to get her an iBook, but for her, $499 was hard to beat. Plus, it free's up some cash for me to continue to sell her on the virtues of an iPod :) My wife uses it for some daily online research. I'll occasionally use it to log on to work due to it's convenient location in the kitchen/family room.</P>
+
+<P>This Windows XP thing means I'll have to make a visit to the <A HREF="http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/jclingan/20040727#viruses_and_the_computing_pharmacy">computing pharmacy</A>. I feel like I am walking in an unsafe neighborhood. I'm always looking over my shoulder when connected to the network (which is *always*). I'm being serious. Honest. I *never* have this feeling on my iMac, JDS or SPARC desktops. It's like I have a <A HREF="http://www.tracking-hackers.com/papers/honeypots.html">honeypot</A> and don't know it.  Eventually I'll install JDS. For now, it's fine. I'll empathize with others for a while. There is nothing of real value on the laptop, anyway. Except, perhaps, for the BIOS and FireFox :)</P>

+<b>US info-sharing initiative called a flop</b>
+<P>
+Nearly a year after its launch, a federal office created as a conduit
+for corporate America to provide the government with sensitive
+information about critical vulnerabilities has been all but rejected
+by the technology industry that helped conceive it.
+<P>
+The Protected Critical Infrastructure Information (PCII) program
+allows corporations who run key elements of US infrastructure to
+submit details about their physical and cyber vulnerabilities to a
+special office within the Department of Homeland Security, with
+legally-enforceable assurances that the information will not be used
+against them or released to the public. The effort is funded at $5.5m
+in the White House's 2006 budget request.

+<b>Startup</b>

+I wrote a while back about <a href="http://www.webmink.net/2005/01/should-companies-fire-bloggers.htm">people being fired for blogging</a> but today's story on <a href="http://money.cnn.com/2005/02/14/news/economy/blogging/index.htm?section=cnn_topstories">CNN Money</a> deserves a response even if the chances of them paying attention are negligible. They say:<blockquote class="cite">NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Mark Jen landed a dream job with Google Inc. in January. He was fired less than a month later.<br /><br />His infraction? He ran a Web log, where he freely gabbed about his impressions of life at the Mountain View, Calif.-based Internet search giant.</blockquote>Um. No, actually. <a href="http://99zeros.blogspot.com/2005/02/official-story-straight-from-source.html">According to Jen</a>, the problem was blogging about <em>"financial performance and future products"</em> while working for a company that takes secrecy as seriously as Apple does. (Not that you would have found that link for yourself as CNN, being a "proper publication", does not cite its sources as links just in case you choose to research them yourself. Their credibility will continue to fall until they wise up to this.) <br /><br />Let's take a look at the other examples CNN cites.<blockquote class="cite">A former Delta Air Lines flight attendant claims she was fired in November over pictures she posted on her personal blog that she says the airline deemed "inappropriate."</blockquote>Do go <a href="http://queenofsky.journalspace.com/?cmd=displaycomments&dcid=471&entryid=471">read her site</a> - you'll probably quickly come to the conclusion that she was fired not for "having a blog" but either for breaching some employment policy of Delta's or to cut her discrimination claim off at the knees. Next is the Friendster case:<blockquote class="cite">Friendster, an online social networking site, canned an employee last summer for her online musings about the company.</blockquote>This is the most likely candidate for a "fired for blogging" story, but we only have <a href="http://troutgirl.com/blog/index.php?/archives/46_Shitcanned.html">Joyce's account</a> to go on for evidence - my suspicion is of deeper bad blood in this one. And then there's the Microsoft example:<blockquote class="cite"> And a Microsoft contractor lost his gig after posting on the Web photos of Apple computers arriving at the software giant's Redmond, Wash., headquarters.</blockquote>Not fired for blogging but rather for revealing traffic through the mail & copy centre on the Redmond campus - <a href="http://www.ensight.org/archives/2005/01/10/discretion-is-the-lesson/">Jeremy advises discretion</a> in postings about work.<br /><br />The Motley Fool has <a href="http://www.fool.com/News/mft/2005/mft05021502.htm">an almost identical article</a> with all the same examples but less insight into them and into the unrelated actions by Apple to stem the leaks that (plague|promote) them. They too clearly think they are a "serious publication" as there are no links to sources either.<br /><br />While "Fired for Blogging" makes great use of a meme from the zeitgeist to create a compelling headline, it doesn't actually tell the truth.  All the accounts I have seen so far are of people being fired for violating their terms of employment or for a consistent record of undesirable performance, and/or in a context of bad blood where something would have happened whatever. Just because a blog is involved doesn't mean people are 'fired for blogging', any more than a person fired for revealing trade secrets at a restaurant is being 'fired for dining'. <br /><br />Blogs are just a new medium for communication and <a href="http://blogs.sun.com/roller/page/webmink/20050110#three_rules_for_blogging">the three rules</a> apply. Anil Dash perhaps <a href="http://www.dashes.com/anil/2005/02/14/nonblogger_fir">identifies a more likely agenda</a> for why this idea is being propagated as it is when he says "nobody's ever been fired for blogging":<blockquote class="cite">We're just barely into the phase where normal people have heard the word "blog", and the zealous political bloggers who form a loud, obnoxious minority of bloggers have decided they want their grandmothers to think of blogging as "that thing that gets journalists fired". That sucks, and it's going to limit the number of people who join into our medium. And the zealous tech bloggers who form a loud, obnoxious minority of bloggers have decided they want their grandmothers to think that blogging is "that thing that gets regular people fired". That's not better.</blockquote>Yes, no-one ever got fired for blogging but there are some vested interests out there who want you to think otherwise.

+A year or so ago I saw Friends for dinner where a woman made <A HREF="http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/database/whitechocolatemousse_7195.shtml" > this </A> amazing dessert. The description does not sound so wonderful but I have been itching to try it. So for <A HREF="http://www.annieshomepage.com/valhistory.html" >Valentines day </A> I had a days holiday to make a three course meal for my wife. We started with Thai fish cakes and a small side salad. I then cheated  buying one of <A HREF="http://www.loydgrossmansauces.com/home.asp" > Lloyd Grossman's green thai sauces  </A> putting chicken and prawns in it. The Thai sauces are excellent  the Italian/Indian ones less so. A tip here if you make any meal that has sauce in it eg spagetti, curry etc cook it twenty four hours before you eat it. The time it spends in the fridge the flavours develop and become more intense.

+Back to desert. The whole thing as can be seen is a biscuit box which is a devil to make. The pastry is cooked with score lines in it so after cooking it can be broken into the pieces that make the box. Fondant icing is meant to be used to hold it together but I could not find any so my neighbour made me an alternative with icing sugar and egg white. The amounts of ingredients listed made me six of these cases. It has to be said about a third of the pieces fell apart on dividing so I had a high failure rate. I found in the end the best way of dividing them is to do so as soon as you can hold the biscuit in your had after it comes out of the oven. 
+</P>
+<P>
+The funny part is I produced a menu for the meal to show my wife when she came to the table. Of course I missed the typo I had done. Mouse instead of mousse. The first meal I cooked her years ago I did exactley the same thing. I should have told her it was deliberate...
+</P>
+<P>
+The other cool thing to say is the picture above was loaded from my Canon IXUS camera at work. We are running JDS, Solar10 and Sunray version 3.0. I plugged the camera into a USB port on my Sunray, cranked up the Multi media Camera browser, selected my camera and up the pictures came. This is just as it should be !

+<p>So the news (<a href="http://news.com.com/2102-1006_3-5572958.html">news.com.com</a>)
+is reporting that Intel and HP are getting into the game... joining the
+ranks of multi-core chip vendors and their customers who see Oracle's
+license strategy (to charge by the core) as misaligned with the times.
+These are times of virtualized resources that are consumed and funded
+as needed, they say.<br><br>I was thinking of an analogy for Oracle's
+position... Consider how you would feel about a policy at Blockbuster
+Video if, when you rented a DVD, you had to pay $10.00 per seat (your
+sofa counts as three - being multi-seated). No, it doesn't matter if
+it'll just be you and your spouse watching the movie. Since you have 15
+seats that you *could* utilize (the bar stools and folding chairs count
+too) you will pay $150.00 per night for that movie. Oh, you'd like to
+display that movie in PARALLEL in your family room and in your
+entertainment room? Sure, you can do that with their "shared disc"
+technology. But now add up all the seats in both rooms (25), and
+that'll be $20.00 per seat! So please pay us $500.00 per night for that
+movie.<br><br>Now, why in the world would Oracle change that policy?
+They've maximized their revenue pull - and customers are still writing
