Base != Market

A name can make the difference between success and failure.

Base? Froogle? Fremont?

No sir, we go to the market to buy and sell stuff.

This year will be remembered as the year of the great exodus
I already got my iBook and iPod
Anxiously waiting for an iPad to complete the Trinity

Lead us to the promised land, King Steve!

HTML 6.0

Blend XForms with XHTML and give us HTML 6.0
That would be enough to fully develop web apps.
Believe it or not, we don't need much more than a tree, grid, menu, slider, splitter and some drag and drop stuff.
Let javascript do the rest.
Deliver incrementally.
We test, feedback, move on.

One last thing, please, let's separate web apps from web pages.
Use http:// for web pages (hypertext)
Use app:// for web applications (hypercontrols)

Really, we don't want to click on a link and have all sorts of apps poping up and hijacking our browser.
Believe me, they will come to get us (spammers) so we better be prepared before they hit us.

So you want attention huh?
Here is all the attention you need:


  
    Attention data for RSS-Bandido 1.0
    http://www.rssbandido.org/attention.xml
    John Doe
    RSS-Bandido 1.0

    2005-11-01T23:59:59
  
  
    
      
        
              
        
      
    
  

Now, let's play a game, try to come up with a better alternative and then we keep improving it.
How about that?

PS. Most tags were stolen from technorati's excellent job in attention.xml (I hate microformats)

Linux is here!

Let me say this first. To the naysayers, go f*ck yourselves.

I just got in the mail my free copies of Ubuntu.
10 CDs they were giving away to whoever requested them at ubuntulinux.org

It worked beautifully fast, ran without one single problem in my old laptop.
It detected the mouse pad without problems.
My external wireless card right on the spot, and detected my wireless conection too.
All I had to do was enter the key and there I was surfing the web with Firefox.
Headed to my web site to test all my XUL apps, oh joy!
Open Office, Firefox, Games, tons of administrative tools.

All of that without seeing the evil console not one single time.
Or dowloading, compiling or installing any drives. It just worked!

This is for you, so called IT guru and FUDder marketeer.
Open your eyes, Linux is here, and is here to stay.

Life in the slow lane

Gone the days of propaganda, vaporware and FUD orgies, we slowly come back to reality, put our hands on the ol' stained keyboard and open notepad to type in the latest and greatest piece of code.

2 Years ago they promised heaven, we got nothing.
Yesterday they promised eternity, we still got nothing.
Wait and see--- f*ck that, life is too short to waste it in the waiting line.

Our memory span is indeed short, and they know it...

With all the madness going on about web 2.0, where are you going to put all your rich web apps?

Where else?

XUL app, just in case...

XUL and COBOL

Very interesting read about integrating legacy applications with modern UIs, producing a responsive application easily deployable and maintainable with very few resources.

http://www.thinkphp.de/XUL_Study_en.pdf

Winners? All. From developers to managers to those who measure ROI and YTD and whatever acronyms they're happy with.

It is not about COBOL or PHP, you can use the language of your choice..

It is about portability, ease of use and of course, about the power of XUL !

XCards

Reading about vCards and hCards and rdfCards, I was wondering about the lack of a 'simple' XML format for personal cards.

Cards that could be posted on your web page, blog or anywhere you feel the need to give your personal/business info in a standard way.

Info that could then be easily parsed and consumed by browsers, aggregators, address books and all sorts of apps that deal with that kind of info.

Need to say more? Let's see:

http://georgenava.com/xcard.xml
http://georgenava.com/xcard.jpg

Now, following the great acceptance of the feed autodiscovery standard, we'll use the same concept for XCards:

So, start coding your scripts and extensions to autodiscover and consume XCards.
And start creating your own card designs and posting them in your blogs and web pages.

PS. Not being an XML academic, let the masters deal with the specs of XCards 1.0.

F*CK RSS!

The last thing the internet needs now is egomaniacs.

Call it feeds, blogs, news, journals or syndication.

Do like Google and be cool, use Atom.
Do the world a favor, use Atom.
Microsoft, do yourself a favor, use Atom.

Call 'blog' a blog, and 'feed' a feed.

F.U.C.K  R.S.S.!

Continuing with the acronym orgy:

Tux
Apache
MySql
Php/Python/Perl
Ajax
XUL

Do we see a pattern here?
