Microsoft: The Value of XML on the Desktop. If only microsoft-developers didn't need to pass whitepapers to the microsoft marketing department, this exciting eighteen pages document could have been a three pages read. However, do spend the time if you also thinks that XML fits into Office-products in general. And - ehm - if you don't please tell me why... "Smart Document solutions", "XML-enabled desktop" - yikes I feel the fear of buzz-word-bonanza coming....
Happy Christmas to all of you... let's hope for peace...
Mygdal - aka commonme aka the don of gonzo - evaluates he's year... Check out the very nice googlism-inspired mygdalism :-)
(Danish post) Open Magazine er det seneste bud i rækken af mere interessante gratis Københavner-magasiner. I modsætning til København Plus og det oprindelige Where2Go er Open Magazine et grafisk magasin, hvor der gives spalteplads til eksperimenterende kunstnere og designere. Nærmest et virus-magasin uden tekst... Håber at de overlever - det første bud ser fedt ud!!!
Note: På trods af at der faktisk er een i redaktionen som hedder Emil Hartvig er vi ikke i familie ;) tak til mygdal for hintet :-)
This is essential reading for all of us cms-mother f****** who have believed - or even worse still believe - that the explorer/word-editor metaphor is the perfect content management interface...
Piracy is Progressive Taxation, and Other Thoughts on the Evolution of Online Distribution - as often, a great piece by Tim O'Reilly
If the ex-CEO Peter Linck of the not-any-longer-so-hot-shot newspaper DAGEN (the day in english) had a weblog it would be running Vignette... not because it would be best, but it would be expensive... as in really expensive...
Welcome to Dave vs Evan at the world championships in putting a weblog-api standard together. Dave leads one to zero with this response!
Mono - the open source .net "alternative" - is moving forward. Really exciting I think!
And I grew older... maybe I'm not such a big decade-foreigner as I thought. Made sushi friday (and even liked it) and ate brunch saturday... What's going on!!!
DAGEN - Masters of communication? The new Danish newspaper announces chapter-11 on their website - right next to subscription-offers... Guess they really are optimists afterall *G*
Åbent hus: I anledning af den søde juletid, er der åbent jule-hygge-hus hjemme hos mig, søndag den 15. dec fra midt på eftermiddagen. Send mig en mail, hvis du kunne tænke dig at komme forbi og drikke glögg :-)
Also tired of redmond-patches for iis? Maybe this could be the solution!
And this is my dream and what I'm doing these days (weeks? months? years?) :o)
Amateur digi-lism at it's best: Without even noticing it - I've just spend thirty minutes going through just some of the wonderful pictures from what probably is a man realizing he's dream. Martin Kessel's travel-report from he's journey around Europe in a boat is really inspiring! Go there and spend some time... and if you're lucky you'll day-dream of boats and beautiful sunrises just like me... Lucky Gert who seems to join him for Christmas :-)
Happy-B to the Legolas lover
