of you who didn't make it, the following is a recap of the events, with a
couple of thoughts and suggestions thrown in.

Test Your Sybase Knowledge Gameshow
Four TeamSybase members (Millard Brown, Terry Voth, Mike Nicewarner, and
myself) do battle against a team of Sybase employees. Each team took turns
answering multiple-choice questions off a Jeopardy-style game board. Fifty
percent of the questions were related to Sybase engineering and the rest were
from other walks of life. There were two rounds with a tiebreaker question
just in case. The audience had handhelds and played along. They had a chance
to win some cool prizes (30GB iPods, PSPs, and Optic Nerve Sunglasses were up
for grabs) at the end of each round (so to the audience it is really two
games). Jonathan Baker (... (more)
2004 was the year that saw the iPod blaze its trail through the technology
heaven, saw Google Inc. go public and double its share price from $100 to
$200, and watched the fortune of RIM (of Blackberry fame) founder Mike
Lazaridis's fortunes grow still further as wireless e-mail became more and
more the rule and not the exception. But what of 2005? Has a wider technology
bounceback begun? At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2005 last week, the
answer seemed to be a resounding: "Yes!"
As everyone who has not been living in a cave for the past 29 years knows,
Microsoft is 100% devoted to changing the world.
"Most people are still not in the digital realm," said Bill Gates in his
opening keynote at CES. But it is far from being the only onion in the stew.
The industry-wide 'return of technology' has begun.
Even Gates himself acknowledged we stand at the threshhold of ... (more)
Two of the hottest technologies to emerge in the past year, Ajax and Ruby on
Rails, took center stage this past weekend at the ServerSide Java Symposium
in Las Vegas. In fact, you could say that Ruby and Ajax have officially
become an item.
Yet, it seems the Ajax and Ruby convergence is more the product of skepticism
than romance. There are critics in the Java space who voice reservation about
applications, necessitating the emergence of Ruby.
Chief among the skeptics is Bruce Tate, an independent software consultant
based in Austin, Texas, who argued that Java has become so complex it
presents a barrier to programmers trying to start working with it. He
proposed Ruby as an easier to learn, programmer-friendly alternative.
"I do think Java is in trouble on the low end," he told symposium attendees ... (more)
We all remember the Internet bubble back in 1999-2000 era. Start-ups were
getting huge valuations. The joke then was – if you are 27 years old and
not a millionaire, then you are a failure. All you needed was a sign-board
saying “new internet company” and stand on Sand Hill Road. Several cars
will stop and within hours, you should have a check worth millions as
This is an exaggeration of course. Jeff Bezos of Amazon even said – we
spell profit as “prophet”. Then the bubble burst one day and the debris
was huge. Hundreds of B2C and B2B companies went belly up.
Now after a decade, we see a bit of a bubble again. The landscape is somewhat
different. There is no rush to an IPO, which was the only way to make the
founders and investors very rich. Now there is a secondary market that buys
stocks off the founders and early employees (and some investors as well)... (more)

Security officials at Cisco have released a patch to fix the Internet
Operating System (IOS) problem that resulted in 'Ciscogate' T-shirts going on
sale last week in Las Vegas, after Michael Lynn — who gave a
controversial presentation on Cisco security (or, rather, insecurity) at the
Black Hat Security Conference — was the subject of a permanent
injunction preventing him from using any Cisco code in his possession for
further reverse engineering or security research or presenting the same
material at the DEF CON hacker convention which followed Black Hat.
Lynn, who has an extensive background in embedded systems, including kernel
development and whose research interests include signals intelligence,
cryptography, VoIP, reverse engineering, "and any protocol designed by
committee," had recently been concentrating his research focus on securing
