Architectural Overview of Shindig, an OpenSocial Reference Implementation

Rajdeep Dua has published a new article explaining the architectural aspects of Shindig. Since I am working on a Shindig integration project myself these days, I find it pretty useful.

Expect more on my Shindig experiment with the WSO2 Mashup Server later ...

Why BitTorrent brings your router to its knees

A concise article explaining why everything else has to be put on hold when you download a torrent at full bandwidth. There are suggestions on how to fix this as well. Unfortunately those might be difficult to implement, unless BitTorrent clients such as Azureus decides to handle it at the application level.

Paul among the best CTOs of 2008

The best CTOs of 2008 | InfoWorld | News | June 02, 2008 | By Galen Gruman

"The CTO's job can be both exhilarating and thankless. Exhilarating in that you get to explore new technologies and figure out how to apply them to create new business opportunities or solve thorny business problems. Thankless in that there's always pressure to do more with less, solve the impossible, and get people to go along with change they may not appreciate the value of. The best CTOs use good people, the right technology, and management skills to meet business challenges."

WSO2's very own Paul Fremantle is on the list (though not surprisingly). Congratulations Paul !!!
