What’s Jason Up to?

Some people have commented on updates to Facebook & Linked in, so thought I’d author a quick post detailing what I’m up to these days. For anyone who’s wondering, as of January of this year, I am no longer at CampusEAI – I’ve chosen to join ContextWeb, an advertising network/exchange vendor based in NYC, as ...

“Sakai Courseware Management” – *the* Sakai Book

This may be old news to others, but I finally have my copy of the new “Sakai Courseware Management” book (courtesy of the folks over at Packt) and more surprisingly have even been able to carve out time to read the contents. For people who may not have been aware, this is the book that ...

Made an Offer on a House

We made (and the seller accepted) an offer on a house today. 4 Bedrooms, a basement for the kiddies — promoting sanity for the parents, and a 15 person hot tub are the highlights.

The company made almost all of its revenue last year from advertising sales. “They’re still really one business, and it’s a search and advertising business,” he said. Google’s other efforts have been “cute,” he said. I’m ...

Portlet Repository Protocol

Java.net has a project for a Portlet Repository Protocol that would let portals go out and retrieve pre-compiled binary portlets, which could then be installed and offered to users. I’ve thought for a while that portlets could do with Eclipse style add/update, and this seems like it could be promising foundational work to roll and ...
