Reshaping the computing world...

Jon Udell (who wrote one of the best books on how to really work with Internet technologies in the shape of the O'Reilly book Practical Internet Groupware) is doing some really important thinking in both his blog and his Infoworld columns.

Like this piece, for example, on the intersection between blogging, collaboration software and Microsoft Office.

It's interesting, as he's putting into words some of the things that I've found myself thinking about over the last month or so - specifically on concepts like presence, publish and subscribe XML web services, and distributed knowledge frameworks. I really have to write and publish in one way or another two thought pieces (one on frameworks for knowledge-based web services, and the other on distributed rights management) that I've been shaping in various conversations with people over the last couple of weeks. And after a conversation we had at ConteXXt, A3 would like me to put together a seminar for Reading University on some of these ideas, so I really do have to get something done...

One thing I've noticed - since leaving Scient and feeling so much less stressed - I've become a lot more creative. As you might be able to tell I'm feeling good about this!

nice article that... have you seen the .NET Briefing Day transcripts? The Jim Allchin piece, once you get past Palladium, talks about Greenwich and Robert Hess introduces Abbey Salizar, first class data object and could-be Groovette. The Hillel Cooperman demo sounds like he's using the advanced 3D interface in Longhorn (3D processing in hardware not a 3D desktop) but of course the pictures are better on radio.
