  • Blog Post: Not surprising, but I have nothing to say

    It's not going to come as a surprise to anyone who used to read my blog and has noticed that it's been very quite. I realized that I really have nothing to say when I'm not working on a project that I can say nothing about. I have been working on a few interesting projects over the last two years, but...
  • Blog Post: WPC here I come

    I've finally registered for this year's WPC and I'm extending an invitation to MBS customers and partners to come chat with my team about some of our plans. We're currently putting together a short presentation to talk about what we're doing and how we think it impacts the MBS community. In return we...
  • Blog Post: Poking my head out of the sand

    Wow, it's been a long time. I kept trying to come back and write something, but between working on new projects and trying to figure out what I could actually write about, well… So, anyway, just to catch up. I left the CRM team at the beginning of the year to work in an incubation / greenhouse...
  • Blog Post: Been very quiet around here

    It's been really quiet around here, well if we define "here" as this blog. It has been decidedly not quiet at home. As many of you know I finally graduated from Seattle University in the middle of June. I also packed up all the crap that was in my temporary apartment and moved it back into the house...
  • Blog Post: When software architecture isn't like building architecture

    We've all been through the talk about how building software is like building buildings. That somehow there's a correlation between creating a software model of reality and a physical model. I've even given presentations and taught course material that made comparisons between how we build buildings from...
  • Blog Post: Inside MS-CRM goes Outside

    It all started with an email to a few guys working on a replacement lead management solution for MSN. The point of that email was that we could change the way software was built and create a new model for our partners around linking software to services in the clouds. Wow, now that I look back on it...
  • Blog Post: When did "Open Source" start to imply "Swiss Army Knife"?

    Todd Bishop mentioned the Higgins project this afternoon. For some reason this one just hit me wrong. I mean, we need a federated identity management system. Until we do everyone will have to roll their own solution and interop will just be a dream. But, just because Microsoft proposes something, does...
  • Blog Post: New-found respect

    I've been spending the last few weeks developing a graduate-level database modeling course as part of my MSE capstone project. Turns out that creating a 10 week long course covering database modeling as part of a Software Engineering program is a lot of work. It's not like the problem space isn't well...
  • Blog Post: Why learn applied formal methods?

    I’m just about finished with the coursework portion for my MSE degree and figured my last quarter should have some fun classes instead of the “usual” ones. I’m taking a course called Applied Formal Methods . It’s all about writing specs using a formal notation, refining them until we get to a...
  • Blog Post: One of those irritating technical things

    I was watching my local educational access channel this morning while walking on my treadmill. I thump pretty hard when I walk so I turned the TV up. That’s when I really started thinking about the volume control feedback. Why the hell does the volume go from 0 to 63? As a computer-savvy person I can...
  • Blog Post: Web services aren’t distributed objects

    Why do we continue to try forcing a distributed object model into the world of web services? Nowhere in the name is there any hint that web service architecture has anything to do with distributed objects. Nowhere is there an implication that there are even objects involved in web service architecture...
