Live Online Radio: Emerging Technologies for Information Delivery
DMRadio has a live show on Friday, March 28 at noon Pacific, 3:00 PM Eastern, about emerging trends in the information market, including open source, data and web 2.0. It's live, meaning you can ask questions of the panel, unlike regular podcasts, so have at it.
The lineup is excellent, and not just because I'm on it. The other people will be Dan Gisolfi of IBM, Chris Keene of Wavemaker and Doug Moran of Pentaho. What I find most interesting is that we're all talking about emerging technologies, and every one of us has an affiliation with open source.
Here's the description for the broadcast:
Convergence, Emergence – Part III
Mash-ups, composite apps, SOA and open-source – these emerging trends present game-changing possibilities for the information manager. Which companies and technologies should you track? Tune into DM Radio’s next broadcast: An Information Revolution, Part III, to learn from some of today’s brightest stars: Dan Gisolfi from IBM’s Emerging Internet Technologies group; Doug Moran, VP of community and co-founder of Pentaho; Chris Keene, CEO of Wavemaker; and special guest host, Mark Madsen of Third Nature.
In parts I and II, we talked about convergence. In this segment, we’ll talk emergence. Topics covered will include: what constitutes a mash-up, and why it can be so powerful; what “situational apps” are all about; how much traction open-source is really getting; the “other shoe” dropping in the open-source evolution; how AJAX can streamline creation of Web apps, despite its single-threaded Achilles heel; and how the composite app might just unravel the enterprise software licensing ball of yarn.
If you miss it, you'll be able to download an mp3 later. Check it out.

The Luther Burger
Browsing can lead to some odd discoveries. While looking for banking information, I came across the "Luther Burger" in my search results. What's a Luther Burger?
"A Luther Burger is a hamburger, specifically a bacon cheeseburger, which employs a glazed donut in place of the bun."This is a good explanation for why Americans tend to outweigh almost every other nation, even as we are the most diet-obsessed. Found via Real Life Comics.
