Dave Johnson on open web technologies, social software and Java
Leo and I spent the night at my parent's place in Chapel Hill last night and we all went to the Carborro farmer's market this morn in search of berries. I snapped this photo in Mom's garden with my new Treo.
Leo's done surprisingly well this weekend, BTW. He didn't cry at all when we dropped his Mom and brothers off at the airport and he's hardly mentioned them at all since then. He has been very clingy and constantly wants to sit in my lap, so I think he is a little uneasy. On the way home from the airport, we stoppped by the RTPBloggers lunch at Crazy Fire (Leesville Rd.) and the lucky little dude got to meet Rafe Colburn, Scott Parkerson, Mark Pilgrim, Sam Ruby and Josh Staiger.
Fortunately for me, I was able to work my normal routine on Friday because he was in preschool during the morning and had a nice long nap in the afternoon. But, he and the 70F weather is going to make it difficult to finish the chapter 5 rewrites by Monday.
Andy Wismar is relieved that IBM finally has a blog policy. I can understand that.
I was a little disappointed in the news about IBM's new policy, but that's only because I was anticipating "the largest ever corporate blogging initiative." I shoulda known better than to believe a blog I'd never seen before. I'm not disappointed in the policy itself. I think it's basically sound. It's a little on the conservative side, but hey, what do you expect from IBM?
Sun's Tim Bray comments on some of the differences between Sun and IBM's policy.
Microsoft's Dare Obasanjo thinks IBM's new policy is a set-back for IBM bloggers.
