What makes a good local website?

Submitted by Jeff Buster@rea... on Mon, 01/09/2006 - 22:57.

Here I am in NORTH EAST OHIO, concerned about the civic situation, but, as is true for all of us, with a limited amount of time and energy.   When the muse strikes me, and I am ready to post to the web, what is the most efficacious web site on which to post?  Fresh brewed daily?,  Hotel Bruce? Cppl Cleveland?

 

Is it healthy to be asking these questions? or is it sacrilegious to be asking?

Yates & Gates

I was reading over at Groklaw, PJ's analysis of Microsoft's Alan Yates' comments at a meeting to discuss the State of Massachussetts decision to transition to plain text, pdf, and ODF(open document format) as standards for all State of Massachussetts documents.

Groklaw started off as a paralegal's blog that analyzed the SCO vs IBM lawsuit. It has since morphed into a large community that analyzes other cases as well, although the focus is still on SCO vs. the World.

BloGTK

Submitted by robataka on Thu, 12/15/2005 - 14:01.

This is a test of a blog client called BloGTK. It is a blog client for linux, much like mac users use ectos.

Just testing to see if I can actuall post using it....

Now that I have seen it can work, I need to create a page on how to set up blog clients for Linux, Mac, and Windows(egad!) users. Of course, blog client software is completely optional. You can create blog via the web interface as normal. However, and regardless of the fact that I have been an active Internet user since 1992, I personally don't like web interfaces. I prefer to create my blog entries locally and save them locally to my pc prior to posting them to the blog.

Ideation to Innovation via Implementation : The formula for economic development

Submitted by Sudhir Kade on Thu, 12/15/2005 - 12:54.

I don't think there is a more valuable resource on our planet than great ideas - the creativity and brainpower that generates innovative ideas is the ultimate source for the creation of new value. Revolutionary new ideas become intellectual property that can be patented, licensed business processes and models, Most models I have seen work to generate new IP through research funding and then work to find the sources of funding for prototyping, development, and testing of the IP generated necessary to commercialize it. So ideation does not become innovation until this process goes full cycle. What I would like to see are systems that share IP generated at one source with thinkers and researchers at other sources who can offer improvements and insights that better the original before it becomes commercialized in its initial, more primitive form.

Japan Broadband Populations Surpassed 21 Million

Submitted by robataka on Fri, 12/02/2005 - 09:26.

I noticed this morning that MM Research Institute of Japan released the recent broadband statistics for Japan. More than 21 million people/organizations now subscribe to broadband access. The bulk of that is ADSL, but close to 4 million are subscribers to fiber-to-the-home. Interestingly enough, I was on the phone until 2AM the other day helping my sister-in-law(yes, she's in Japan) set up here FTTH 100Mbps connection.
