    Sounds of Silence

    I came back from the far east and got buried by email and meetings. Plus my stupid HP laptop is still stupid - now the both the built in wireless and the PCMCIA card slot are not working correctly so I can't get on wireless. Amazing how quickly the ability...

    Final Day of My Far East Trip

    • 2 Comments
    I said yesterday that the Metropolis session had gone very well. Got the score back - 7.71/9 speaker satisfaction and 7.83/9 content satisfaction. Not bad, esp. given that it was a translated session. Today, I presented Data in SOA, and I thought it well...

    Metropolis in Beijing

    • 3 Comments
    So the Metropolis session went very well, even though it was being translated. We did what is called interactive translation - where I say a few sentences in English and then Quanzhan translated it into Chinese. It meant that we couldn't cover as much...

    Stage 1 on New WS Specs

    I'll be honest, with a quick glance at WS-Enumeration and WS-Transfer I'm at what Don refers to as Stage 1. Especially WS-Transfer which appears at first glance to be CRUD for web services. Maarten talks about using CRUD only when you can afford it ....

    I made it to Beijing yesterday with no problem. There was a car waiting for me at the airport, and one of the speaker managers met me at my hotel shortly after I arrived. They even provide a loner dopod SmartPhone for use while I'm here though I'm not...

    Leaving KL

    Gurpreet on Enterprise Architecture

    • 6 Comments
    I just finished my Data in SOA talk for TechEd Malaysia. The room was very hot and the session was right after lunch - not exactly optimal conditions. I did OK - could have been better. Between time in hotels and on airplanes with nothing to do but code...

    • 3 Comments
    I presented Software Factories for the first time today and I think I did a pretty good job. We had some architects were in town from a new managed SI partner and they wanted to discuss modeling. They are (were?) an IBM partner, so they're a big WebSphere...
