  • Interesting News Item of the Week:  Microsoft is buying Skype.  I’m a huge fan of Skype.  I like it best as an IM client, and as a teleconferencing system as well.  The creepy feeling you get when someone is on Skype in a conference room using a nice set of speakers takes some getting used to.  It’s a bout 342 times better than a POTS conferencing system.  Anyhoo – I’ll be curious to see if MS rewrites the currently-written-in-Delphi Windows clients and continues to support non-Windows clients as well. 
  • New Delphi Blog of the Week: Delphi Sorcery  and I’ll give him Cool Delphi Code of the Week as well. 
  • As you may have noticed, I’ve added one of those little tool bars to my posts that let’s you Like/Add/Tweet/whatever my postings.  I do this in a self-glorifying attempt to get you to broadcast my stuff more.  It was amazingly easy to do with AddThis.  I trust you all will take the hint. 
  • I thought this was pretty impressive.  How long can it be before everything is just a Javascript application running in a browser?  I’ve been saying for years that Javascript is to the browser what assembler is to the CPU.

A Pithy Quote for You

"If we seek merely swollen, slothful ease and ignoble peace, if we shrink from the hard contests where men must win at the hazard of their lives and risk all that they hold dear, then bolder and stronger peoples will pass us by, and win for themselves the domination of the world."    –  Theodore Roosevelt
