Sacred Cow Dung: All Things Web 2.0 - "THE LIST"

I have not paid attention to some of the webs latest initatives. However Web 2.0 seems to be all the craze. My attentions have been directed elsewhere, however this site has some good primer information and links to the OpenBC site, which has a lot more links and information. Its a good road to walk down if you have nothing better to do, but almost all the items you will encounter are BETA or first generation projects which in most cases means there is still a lot to be desired.

Friday Fun!

I'm a Chevrolet Corvette!

You're a classic - powerful, athletic, and competitive. You're all about winning the race and getting the job done. While you have a practical everyday side, you get wild when anyone pushes your pedal. You hate to lose, but you hardly ever do.

Does teleportation exist as a possibility for us? This all centers on quantum computing and advances are being made which takes us much closer to exploring the realms of teleportation, if not of human beings, but of simple objects themselves. Based upon some of the research and the advances we have made in the past twenty to thirty years, I believe we are not far off from having some very interesting (if not costly) options regarding the possibilities of teleportation.

When looking at a larger picture of 100 or 200 years down the road, there will most likely be some fundamental shifts in our collective societies to accommodate these technologies, not just of teleportation but also of advances from the general application of quantum computing.

It is amazing when looking back to the early 1970’s and then looking at today. Sure we do not have flying cars and personal robots, but we have cell phones, laptop computers and PDAs, wireless networks, more user IDs and passwords than we can remember, and a valid documentation is more critical today than it ever was.

Non-Lethal Security services are present within corporate environments and major metropolitan areas. The receptionist has been replaced by an automated voice routing system and a security desk.

The following book explores only the topic of teleportation, but gives an interesting history of quantum computing, details the current advances, and explains some of the current obstacles to teleportation. It is an interesting read, if there is a deeper interest into researching the subjects covered it also provides many references forther follow-up.

Online Chat Rooms, Cybersex, and MMOs?

Online Chat Rooms, Cybersex, and MMOs. Combine the three and what do you get? Naughty America. Seems the folks at E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) are taking a stand on what is allowed and not in the gaming industry. Interesting debate this will undoubtedly kick up.

First booth babes are ousted, now Naughty America has been banned

Outside of that, it is in an interesting concept. Will be interesting to see if they recieve commercial success with this product or not.

Full Version: Virtual Server 2005 R2 Enterprise Edition

This has been bandied about quite a bit, but it is worth it to post again if you have not taken the time to read up on it,

Virtual Server 2005 R2 Enterprise Edition is now available as a free download and requires only basic registration. Combined with the new usage rights in Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition, which allow four concurrent guest OS instances to run under the one Windows 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition license, the use of virtualization will grow rapidly. When Windows Server code name "Longhorn" ships, the Datacenter Edition will allow unlimited Windows guest operating systems at no additional licensing costs.
