First IT|Redux Breakfast : The World is Flat

Ismael Ghalimi is hosting a breakfast meeting on April 18 at the Hotel Sofitel. I’m going, the topic is interesting, Ismael has a lot of experience in the area, and quite honestly, very few people are publicly talking about how to actually implement “populist catch phrase business strategy” for this important area. People like to say the world is flat, but beyond the title of the book there isn’t much else said.

The theme for this meeting is The World is Flat, based on Thomas L. Friedman’s excellent book. We will discuss how Friedman’s ten flatteners can be put to use by software vendors today, using Intalio and a couple other start-ups as reference cases. This event is sponsored by Lohika — our offshore development partner — and will feature their CTO, Mark Phillips, who will share his experience working with small and large software companies that successfully offshored part of their software engineering process to Western Ukraine.

Scoble: poster child for not blogging

It’s pretty ironic that Carr would use anyone other than himself as an example of “shrill” and “antagonistic”.

Scobleizer – Microsoft Geek Blogger » Scoble: poster child for not blogging:
But, Nicholas Carr used my few bad responses against all corporate bloggers. I guess he wants a PR machine to blog. A committee. A group of editors. People who will ensure that nothing wrong, or bad, or insane will ever get onto blogs.

Big changes at Newsgator

Looks like Newsgator made a major service refresh over the weekend (earlier maybe?) and revamped their pricing model. I wish their blogroll service was a little more flexible with regard to folders and such, but everything else about their service and products rocks (I subscribe and have licenses for FeedDemon and NetNewsWire).
