SakaiCon Recap

Sitting on a flight, returning from the Sakai conference — still trying to take everything in. There’ll probably be more musing on the significance of specific items coming up, but things that struck me enough to want to brain dump were: * There was wide consensus during the planning sessions that there’s a desire to ...

Colloquy 2.1 (3720)

Blog and it shall be done! Colloquy just released an update which lists the blank chat room problem (source of amusement like “hello…?”. This makes me happy since aside from that small incapacitating bug, I’ve been extremely happy with Colloquy — it makes IRC feel like not IRC 🙂 Release Notes Colloquy 2.1 (3720) The ...

Colloquy: Known Issue

I’ve been using Colloquy as an IRC client — for the most part it’s just beautiful and very Mac like.

JA-SIG Conference: Matt Asay Keynote

> “Connected world, Connected Software”, “Open source produces better software” (81% of respondents via Gartner) Matt’s perspective on focusing innovation on the “last mile” plays well with my thoughts on focusing on delivering institutional value. It’s interesting in that he combines that perspective with the pitch that open-source empowers you to build software to suit ...

Faizan got PersonDirectory working — after several updates and IRC exchanges with Eric. So uP3 now hits Rutgers LDAP to retrieve a mapping of our person attributes. Hard to test since the Portlet spec makes you explicitly declare the user attributes a portlet recieves. Probably privacy friendly, though writing a “show me all the attibutes” ...

How does the uPortal community uncover user needs, especially those specific to higher-education? The uPortal community has attempted to answer these questions via an open, ongoing process. This presentation provides an overview of the uPortal Requirements ...

Northrop Grumman will build at least three full-scale flight prototypes for the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa) over five years The contract win will allow Northrop to continue work on its ...

Air Conditioned Jacket

You know, you can find the damndest things when you clean out your email, like perhaps an air conditioned jacket from Japanese firm PC2B. It keeps you cool and makes you look like a bloated marshmallow man all at once. Perhaps you could just, you know, take off the jacket. ——–
