Meetings - Unproductive

69% of the 38,000 people surveyed considered meetings to be an unproductive use of time. A shocking finding indeed!

  • Women had an average productivity score of 72 percent, compared with 71 percent for men (U.S.: women, 70 percent; men, 68 percent).

Interview with Mozilla Chief - Mitchell Baker
(Questioner)Roblimo: And as far as companies that are giving financial support, Microsoft and who else?
Mitchell: (laughing) Yeah, right. Microsoft?
Roblimo: (laughing) Well, I like to end things with a little humor.



If scalability matters, everybody thinks of JAVA only....To prove that sun guys achieved one more level...

"Today, when a user runs multiple Java applications concurrently in different instances of the Java virtual machine (JVM), there tends to be substantial duplication of effort in each JVM. For example, when multiple applications are executed concurrently, each has to load, parse, verify, and create runtime representations of all the applications' classes, even such common ones as java.lang.Object. Application start-up time, memory footprint, and raw execution time are thus negatively impacted."

"Developing techniques that allow for collocation of multiple applications in a single instance of the virtual machine. Applications are isolated from one another and each "thinks" it has the whole virtual machine all to itself. Aggressive transparent sharing of metadata, such as bytecodes of methods, reduces application footprint and start-up time. Furthermore, through building on the foundation of an isolated Java computation (known as an "isolate"), the team has developed a set of resource management techniques and APIs which allow developers to define new resource types, partition resources among computations, and control resource management overhead."

Novel Reading

In the latest versions, cell-phone novels are downloaded in short installments and run on handsets as Java-based applications. You're free to browse as though you're in a bookstore, whether you're at home, in your office or on a commuter train. A whole library can be tucked away in your cell phone -- a gadget you carry around anyway.

WOW..J2ME Rocks..

Good One(got this via mail)

Horror gripped the heart of a World War-I soldier, as he saw his lifelong
friend fall in battle. The soldier asked his Lieutenant if he could go out
to bring his fallen comrade back.

"You can go," said the Lieutenant," but don't think it will be worth it.
Your friend is probably dead and you may throw your life away."

The Lieutenant's words didn't matter, and the soldier went anyway.

Miraculously, he managed to reach his friend, hoisted him onto his shoulder
and brought him back to their company's trench. The officer checked the
wounded soldier, and then looked kindly at his friend.

"I told you it wouldn't be worth it," he said. "Your friend is dead and you
are mortally wounded."

"It was worth it, Sir," said the soldier.

"What do you mean by worth it?" responded the Lieutenant.

"Your friend is dead."

"Yes Sir," the soldier answered, "but it was worth it because when I got to
him, he was still alive and I had the satisfaction of hearing him
say...."Jim...I knew you'd come." "
Many times in life, whether a thing is worth doing or not, really depends
on how you look at it. Take up all your courage and do something your heart
tells you to do so that you may not regret not doing it later in your
"Let the spirit of friendship in us not die"

About Blogs

I already said, BLOGS are going to be a big hit in 2005...
There are 8 million bloggers in the world now...WOW..

SUN is the leading company in that list...

"Any company that feels threatened by blogs probably feels threatened by the Internet." - Schwartz

Tim Bray on why Blogging is good for your career.

Blogs are started with...
blogs = web diary
blogs = personal journalism
blogs = suggestion box
blogs = Marketting tool
blogs = Mandatory one for an employee
blogs = ?????

some great notes/mini-transcripts from a gathering at The Publicity Club of New York
Q: What is the future of blogging? Is this a fad?

A: 62% of Americans are still not even aware that blogs exist. However, there are bloggers who have maintained the SAME blog for five straight years. This staying power is a good sign that blogs are not a passing fad. Blogging, if nothing more, is an efficient way for people to communicate over the internet.

A: This is a very unsettled time for the media industry. I feel that the “category” itself will eventually disappear as blogging becomes more mainstream. People and companies will no longer be referred to as “bloggers,” just as today, we do not refer to people as “emailers.” That just goes without saying.

A: The world of “controlling the message” is over. News and information is no longer in the hands of a few (large news outlets).

Start a Startup

Last time I mentioned his article( Great Hackers ) in my blog...
This month article simply superb..some excerpts from that article...

What matters is not ideas, but the people who have them. Good people can fix bad ideas, but good ideas can't save bad people.

Business people are bad at deciding what to do with technology, because they don't know what the options are, or which kinds of problems are hard and which are easy.

The rulers of the technology business tend to come from technology, not business. So if you want to invest two years in something that will help you succeed in business, the evidence suggests you'd do better to learn how to hack than get an MBA

A 10% improvement in ease of use doesn't just increase your sales 10%. It's more likely to double your sales.

So if you want to win through better technology, aim at smaller customers.

An apartment is also the right kind of place for developing software. Cube farms suck for that, as you've probably discovered if you've tried it. Ever notice how much easier it is to hack at home than at work? So why not make work more like home?

So who should start a startup? Someone who is a good hacker, between about 23 and 38, and who wants to solve the money problem in one shot instead of getting paid gradually over a conventional working life.

A New Approach to Web Applications

Ajax isn’t a technology. It's really several technologies, each flourishing in its own right, coming together in powerful new ways. Ajax incorporates:
1) standards-based presentation using XHTML and CSS;
2) dynamic display and interaction using the Document Object Model;
3) data interchange and manipulation using XML and XSLT;
4) asynchronous data retrieval using XMLHttpRequest;
5) and JavaScript binding everything together.

Truth about Open Source software (OSS)

1. If you're not willing to help fix it then you shouldn't complain about it
2. Open Source software allows you to get under the hood and fix problems
3. All software should be free
4. Open Source software is always better than closed, proprietary software
5. Scratching the personal itch
6. More choice is always better
7. Conclusion: It's Not So Simple


The Code Quality Myth

we as developers must care about code quality, since we spend most of our waking hours working on code. And, as every good craftsman, we strive for quality. A physician would want to practice high quality medicine, or any carpenter worth his salt would want to produce a quality staircase or chest. As developers, we also like to produce and maintain a high quality code base.

Compare to other code analyzers checkstyle works fine..But it forces lot of restriction as per the SUN coding standards...but still worth to use and practise..

You can run this as STANDALONE tool (or) use the plugin to incorporate with eclipse tool..
