Tech Tock

Time is of the essence.

Great all hands meeting @Lab.  Everyone in NY was there and company philosophies were well explained — for 2 hours!  And that was the short version!  But this is a management meeting I can handle and not just because of the drinks afterward.  These guys really know what they’re talking about and the Q&A was interesting and informative.  But the drinks were good and there was plenty of mingling with Lab’s best and brightest.  Talk tended to the standard geeky topics: Flash vs Apple vs. Silverlight, JavaScript, AOP for INotify, projects, HTML5,  etc..

Quote of the Week

“Even a negative result is a result.”

.Net Vs. Java

The heartbreaking story of Java beating the pants off Net. (NSFW scene toward the end).

Silverlight vs. JS

Finally a little love for Silverlight.  Silverlight is still good even though JavaScript has JQuery.

HTML 5 Anyone?

– Sproutcore

– 52framework

– Sencha Touch (Mobiles)

Although Google did support flash on their android … They just rewrote the mobile YouTube site in HTML5!

A draft of Mark Pilgrim’s “Dive into HTML 5” to be published by O’Reilly.

Opening Windows From Silverlight Can Be Unpleasant

HtmlPage.PopupWindow:  sure it exists, but it requires a user action and it doesn’t give you all the control you may want.  I usually go to JavaScript where you need to open up another application instance if you want another Silverlight window.  The you’re into LocalConnections for communication.


A jQuery plug-in. Yes, now there’s even more juicy goodness in jQuery.
