Douglas Crockford's Upcoming AJAXWorld Session

The Web needs fixing. The standards and recommendations that define the Web were last revised in 1999. Since then, the Web has grown from a document retrieval system into an application delivery system. We have made significant progress since then, due to the cleverness of the Web development community and the surprising expressive power of JavaScript, but we are at the limits. The Web is no longer a driver of innovation. It is now a serious impediment. The Web is overly complex. It is visually underpowered. It is hopelessly insecure.

Conferences, conferences, conferences...

Fall is here and with it conferences, conferences, conferences. A couple of years ago you had to fight to get a conference pass/session to talk, but this has changed over the past 1.5 year. Some people would say that there are too many conferences and that it is tiring to travel blah, blah, blah. Personally I find it rewarding to travel and have the opportunity to meet interesting and smart people working in the same field as yourself. Sure, flying is not fun and being away from your family is not fun, but being able to share your thoughts with others and hear others talk about their experience is extremely rewarding. You definitely grow as an individual. In case you would like to meet me at a conference here is my fall schedule, so far: EclipseWorld, Boston USA - Sept 7th Session: 301 - Facing JavaServer Faces Development With JSF Tools Javazone, Oslo Norway - Sept 13...
