Bookmarks for March 1st through March 5th
I find this stuff so that you don’t have to.
- Microsoft’s No-Win IE6 Browser Mess – "But who really cares about browser market share other than the vendors and web developers?"
- For Open Government, Technology Is The Least of Your Problems – "It appears that, between Drupal, ideaScale, cloud computing conversations, a disproportionate part of the discussions around open government concerns tools and technologies."
- What do analysts actually do? – Really informative post!
- Work Smarter: Red Gate – Nice little article about Red Gate in Cambridge, a tech company incubating startups.
- Snap Bird – search twitter’s history – Search just your followers on Twitter – and other stuff besides.
- Communities & Knowledge – A rather good blog from the IDeA knowledge management team.
- okcon – The Open Knowledge Conference – "The Open Knowledge Conference (OKCon) is back for its fifth installment bringing together individuals and groups from across the open knowledge spectrum for a day of discussions workshops."
- Using the internet for effective citizenship – Lovely post from Michael Grimes – @citizensheep on Twitter (if you don't follow him, do so).
- Ignore the Google and Microsoft sideshow | Irregular Enterprise | ZDNet.com – "There is a pattern emerging here. Don’t like what a competitor is doing? Sue them. Paint them as evil. It’s the last gasp of a company that’s run out of ideas. Oracle is at it and now Microsoft."
- The rise of Open Source Hardware – BankerVision – "With the barriers to entry for companies making new physical products falling, everything becomes about talent and innovation, rather than control of industrial age assets such as finance and manufacturing capacity. This is a world shift we’ve already seen in digital products, obviously. Now we have it for physical ones as well."
- Innovation – what prat thought this up? would you take a bullet for your innovation? – John Suffolk – Government CIO – In times of financial strife, the word innovation, gets talked about more and more as if people think it is something that can be turned on and off at whim. We all know in reality to create an innovative environment takes time, patience, leadership and a recognition that for each successful innovation many fail.
