Every week now since April, 2001 I have been writing an article for ITWorld. For a couple of years they where about XML, then I switched over to a wider e-Business banner and, well, wrote about whatever took hold of me at the time.

Generally, when a new article is published on the ITWorld site, I blog it here. Some folks get an e-mail feed directly from the ITWorld site.

Anyway, I'm finishing up the E-Business articles for a while at the end of this month. I'm going to write stuff from a different angle for the next while on the same weekly schedule with ITWorld. I'll blog it here as before.

The plan is that some time next year, I'll switch again to something that ITWorld has cooking. More news on that later.

Leveraging hardware errors

Sometimes, interesting things happen as hardware fails : Mars robot unearths microbe clue.

Aside: what a mind-blowing technical accomplishment the rovers have been! Initial mission duration estimate: 90 days. Days at last count : 1400 and there is life in the old birds yet. Amazing.

Words fail me

Words that lack sufficience.

Sentences that lack all adequacy.

Here: http://thekingdomkids.org/.

And here : Uncle Uche.

Saying nothing (outside of this) seems like the least inadequate thing to say.
