Google buys Writely

March 17, 2006 at 2:24 pm | Posted in tech | Leave a comment

And why do you care?  Because Writely offers a free, online word processor that works through a browser.  No software, no downloading.  The fact that Google bought the company supports the theory that Google is getting ready to start competing with Microsoft by offering products similar to Word, PowerPoint and Excel for use online. 

Microsoft has made its money by selling and licensing software one copy at a time.  You buy it, you install it, you use it on ONLY one computer.  In the world of web-based software, you are no longer tied to one computer.  Store your files online, or on a flash drive, and work wherever you find an Internet connection.

This could be the future of software.  Stay tuned.

Web 2.0 interview

March 17, 2006 at 2:15 pm | Posted in tech | Leave a comment

Web 2.0 is being positioned, some say artificially, as the next phase in the growth of the web.  Phase 1 was the development of basic sites as well as the dot come boom and bust.  The next phase involves more user collaboration and increasingly interatives sites like del.icio.us and flickr. 

The Washington Post held a live, online interview with Doug Addison, author of the Web Site Cookbook.  He shares his views on Web 2.0 and answers some good questions like:

  • What interesting trends are you seeing in Web design today?
  • I’m a wanna-be webmaster. Where’s a good (free) place on the web to learn (ie tutorials)?
  • What’s the best web programming language out there?

Follow the link for the interview.

Peter- I'm gonna need you to come in this weekend.As someone who has spent a decent part of my working life, to date, in a cubicle, I was fascinated to learn that the architect of the office cubicle regrets how his concept has evolved.  Bob Probst originated the design to encourage open communication within a white collar workplace.  He never intended to create a grey warren of little boxes with workers peaking over the sides like prairie dogs.

It’s their headline not mine.
