A few worthwhile tech reads in the big papers over the last few days:
The Washington Post reports on the good deals tech companies are finding by moving out of the metropolis to Prince William County in Virginia. We recently wrote a similar story about Virginia drawing in data center business. It’s on SearchCIO-Midmarket.com.
The Post also reports on efforts to snapshot federal government web pages before Bush leaves office. Now we can show our children and grandchildren what the Web looked like without civil liberties.
The San Francisco Chronicle speculates that the new Palm Treo Pro could help the market-share-losing smartphone manufacturer regain some ground. Of course, recent Forrester research suggests otherwise.
Haven’t really digested this long piece yet, but author Jonathan Franzen is going off about cell phones and technology in the MIT Technology Review. Whatever Franzen is on about, he probably doesn’t like all the dopey shopping gadgets The Boston Globe cheerfully reported on. Isn’t there a point where going to the grocery store is as efficient a process as we need it to be?
