                    Is SOA Dead?

                    Image by crazbabe21 via Flickr At the first of the year, Anne Thomas Manes wrote a provocative blog entry stating that SOA is dead. This week's Technometria podcast is a discussion with Anne about her thesis and what it means for practitioners and technologists. I think you'll enjoy it whether you're a fan of SOA or not. From the description at IT Conversations: Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) provides ways to group functions around business processes, packaging them as services. This allows for better coordination between services. Anne Thomas Manes of the Burton Group joins Phil and Scott to discuss whether

                    The Gang is Back!

                    The Gillmor Gang is back and still the same. If you loved if before, you'll still love it. I laughed out loud twice in the first 15 minutes of show II. It's only on Facebook, so you'll have to join if you're not already a member. If you do, feel free to add me as a friend.

                    Talking Research with Rick Rashid

                    This week's technometria podcast is a discussion with Rick Rashid. Not only is he the head of Microsoft Research, but he's also the guy who started it. Microsoft Research is dedicated to conducting both basic and applied research in computer science and software engineering. The company also collaborates openly with colleges and universities worldwide to broadly advance the field of computer science. We discuss both Microsoft Research, as well as the general status of technology research. Rick first talks about his background and what led him to become involved in the formation of Microsoft Research. He discusses the general

You can also listen to the interview if you'd rather.

                    EO Wilson in Utah

                    I'm listening to Doug Fabrizio interview EO Wilson on Radio West. Doug is one of the best interviewers I know and I always enjoy him--I listen to him whenever I can. EO Wilson is in Salt Lake this week as a guest of the Utah Museum of Natural History and the Nature Conservancy. He spoke last night as part of the Nature of Things series. He was just delightful to hear and listen to. EO Wilson is the author of many influential books, including On Human Nature and, his latest, The Creation: An Appeal to Save Life on Earth.

                    Who Wants To Be a VC?

                    Over the holidays I published a reduced schedule on IT Conversations. But we start the new year off with a full slate of great shows. Today I put up the Technometria show featuring Bryce Roberts of O'Reilly AlphaTech Ventures. Talking with Bryce was fun. At one point I asked him how one becomes a venture capitalist, so if you've ever wondered, give it a listen.

                    Rohit Khare and Decentralization

                    Yesterday I put another edition of the Technometria Podcast on IT Conversations. This one is Matt Asay and I talking with Rohit Khare. We had a great conversation about decentralization that ranged from the stock market to Nigerian 419 scams. Today I posted another edition of IEEE Spectrum Radio--a panel discussion of the FBI Virtual Case File debacle. This is a case study in how to screw up a software project.

                    In Praise of IT Conversations' Audio Engineers

                    I published a panel discussion of Web 2.0 from SofTECH last week. Listen to it--I think you're like it. In fact I was so sure it was good content that I put it in the production queue against the advice of Paul Figgiani, IT Conversation's Chief Audio Engineer. As we got it, the audio was pretty rough. If you listen to it now, you'd never know it--I was amazed at how well it had cleaned up. All I've got to say is that Steven Ng, the show's audio engineer and Paul are miracle workers. At one point in the

                    Between the Lines has a collection of audio from this year's MIT Sloan CIO Symposium online. So far, there's no RSS link. I'm looking forward to listening to these. I also just posted an article to Between the Lines on the greatest software ever written. Leave a comment and let me know what you think are the greatest feats of programming ever.

                    Business Continuity Planning for Academics

                    Writing about business continuity planning in light of avian flu scares for Between the Lines made me think about the same subject in the context of what I'm doing now: teaching classes, doing research, and interacting with students. I came to the conclusion that we could actually manage fairly well. My students are already using email and instant messaging to contact me. Naturally, we still meet face to face a good deal as well, using IM mainly for quick discussions, setting up appointments and so on, but in an emergency we could move more to IM and email. My
