The value inherent to web events

Ron Richard Profile: Ron Richard

Would you like to simplify an SAP Upgrade or reign over risk and instill performance assurance for greater operational excellence? If so you may want to check out this list of IDS Sheer webcasts. If you find they help you make quality, value, excellence and simplicity increasingly inherent, feel free to write a related comment or post. For further awareness you will note at least one of the webcasts is also listed on SearchCIO.Com, where you can find various webcasts that you may wish to also write a post or comment on. Thank you for doing so. 

Increasingly the value inherent to web events is growing and helping others ensure greater value within their organizations and for their customers. This post takes no credit, simply shares awareness of a few web events that may be of value to you, intrinsically and pervasively.

Some interesting reading at Hack-igations. For a related post and comment also see FTC: Failing the Consumer. Is PCI compliance enough? Is non-compliance illegal?

As a society we need to focus on beating the criminals, and stop flogging victims like TJX as unfair privacy infringers. — Benjamin Wright

Bloggers, one of the strongest links

Ron Richard Profile: Ron Richard

With respect to the evolution of the Internet, bloggers are drivers and a resultant characteristic. Increasingly each blogger has the potential to be an inherent quality. Collectively bloggers have the potential to be a positive force for good. Ideally bloggers continue to rise and progressively contribute to helping make things better from various perspectives. Do bloggers tend toward neuroticism? Will blogging become a career for many? Will it be one that intrinsically pays well and pervasively makes a world of positive difference? For a related post and comments see, Bloggers: A Dying Breed?

To blogger Suzmonster, Thank You! Your recent comment about XBRL was appreciated.

New website, Try XBRL

Ron Richard Profile: Ron Richard

Here is another example of fellowship, the global efforts of a consortium, such as one related to XBRL, an internationally recognized standard for electronic business and financial reporting. This April 3, 2008 Zorba.ca post says the new website by RR Donnelley and Edgar Online provides complimentary access to over 12000 US filers, and is definitely worth some time browsing and testing. If you Try XBRL feel free to write a related comment or post; thank you for doing so.

Booch joining the Software Technology Department at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center as Chief Scientist for Software Engineering

Ron Richard Profile: Ron Richard

Some interesting posts these days over at Booch’s blog (Handbook of Software Architecture). For example see the March 10 post, Rational Machines, which at end includes a great quote of the day: Some day, on the corporate balance sheet, there will be an entry which reads, ‘Information’; for in most cases, the information is more valuable than the hardware which processes it. — Grace Murray Hopper.

As you read towards present day you will encounter the March 18 post, Living A Life of Ands, which includes a very different, real and enjoyable self-description by Grady. In the post he also shares awareness that he is joining the Software Technology Department at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center as Chief Scientist for Software Engineering.

All the best Grady; I look forward to eventually hearing of a publish date for your much anticipated new book.

How to: Set an IIS Application or AppPool to use ASP.Net 3.5

Ron Richard Profile: Ron Richard

Good post over at Scott Hanselman’s ComputerZen.Com on how to set an IIS Application or AppPool to use ASP.NET 3.5 rather than 2.0.

Among other the post includes these comments:

WOW! That is alot of text just to say: To Run .Net 3.0 / .Net 3.5 ASP.Net apps, select the .Net 2.0 runtime in IIS! — Bob Archer

I agree with Bob that your tip for running .NET 3.0 and 3.5 apps in IIS could have been summed up in a single sentence, but I really enjoy hearing the why and how of things. Thank you for taking the time to lay it out so simply! — Kevin Babcock

If it takes a 4 page post to explain why you don’t need to set a dropdown to 3.5, then something went wrong somewhere. — sjohnson

Some people have commented that this post was pointless but I was just happy to finally read this blog and find something I already knew! I usually glaze over when trying to keep up with Scott’s mind haha — Matthew Harris

Global economy approaches the Jump Point in the next 1000 days

Ron Richard Profile: Ron Richard

Story here: Tom Hayes Takes Aim, How Local Economies Can Compete After the Jump Point (posted Mar 24, 2008; brief excerpt below). Tom is one of the many inherent qualities of the InternetEvolution.Com.

I have often been asked what makes regional economies successful.  My answer invariably reduces down to a few essential characteristics.  As the global economy approaches the Jump Point in the next 1000 days, those qualities are more important than ever.
