Au Revoir

This is my last blog article here; Friday was my last working day at Sun Microsystems, and Monday/tomorrow is the last day they're paying me. Its been fun, most of the time, but I am looking forward to something new. I have not yet set up a new blog, and am unsure what I am going to do about it. I hope to set up a wordpress blog inside the http://davelevy.info domain, where I have a place holder at davelevy.info/blog. but until then you can follow me at http://friendfeed.com/DaveLevy.

Interestingly the English have difficulty with “Hope to see you soon”; unlike our European colleagues we don't have a single word but I am sure this is not Goodbye, merely Aurevoir.

Thanks for reading this blog over the last five years. I wish my friends who are staying to work for Oracle and Sun's customers all the best over the coming future. Finally, thanks to all the customer's I've worked with in making their IT better than it was.

Open Source, the price is right

I shall be speaking tomorrow on "Open Source, Free the right price!" and shall be posting my slides here. I have been busy reading up my undergraduate economics to remind me of what I learned then and check that it hasn't changed. I borrowed Beggs, Fischer and Dornbusch's "Economics", since I got rid of my text books years ago and this seems to be the modern equivilent. I have also tagged it in my living social booklist.

Aurevoir Slynkr

While researching an article on personal feed aggregators, I came to the conclusion that I will stop posting to slynkr; the service was built as a prototype/demonstrator, and has become too unreliable, its hardly ever available. I will continue to experiment with it as it remains a useful opensource project that can act as a community focus, having advantages that bulletin boards lack.

I liked its tagging feature, although the retrieval interface for tags was not as good as it might have been.

I may run one up on davelevy.info. Things I think interesting and want to share, I'll pump out via my google share, articles I want to tag, I'll use del.icio.us.

Microblogging

In the article My Twitter Manifesto, I stated that I did not propose to use Twitter as a microblog, the closest thing I have to one is my del.icio.us feed, http://del.icio.us/rss/DaveLevy which since I bookmark nearly everything I read, gives you an idea of what I am thinking about at least. I nearly always comment on a site/page, although not always in my own words. But if your interested.... it's there. The most recent seven items are also in the sidebar on this page.

If you want to know what I am reading

Facebook's "Visual Bookshelf" has recently fixed their service that allows the embedding of your book shelf within HTML. I have posted my reading list at davelevy.info, so non-facebook users can follow my reading, if you so choose. I haven't posted it here; you can hover over the hyperlink. Their instructions are posted on their blog.
