Lunch with Mike Milinkovich, Happy 5th birthday Eclipse, and the Eclipse project draft 3.3 plan... Some of the DTG team had lunch the other day with Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation.  It is always a pleasure to meet with the pre-eminent evangelist for Eclipse.  During lunch Mike reminded us of several important Eclipse milestones (not the software milestone kind). Happy 5th birthday Eclipse celebrations will be happening around the world on or about November 7th.  Go to the birthday party web site at http://www.eclipse.org/community/eclipsebirthday5/birthdaypa...

James Gosling seeks to extinguish scripting languages comment "flamewar" I guess we all have to watch out what we say about things that people care about. A few weeks ago, James Gosling, the father of the Java programming language, was quoted from an Sys-Con TV interview saying, "Java Is Under No Serious Threat From PHP, Ruby or C#". His comments immediately sparked an Internet flamewar. This week, Sys-Con TV has a follow up piece where Gosling "Seeks to Extinguish" the Scripting Flamewar. I love it. Maybe I'll get flamed for blogging about the whole affair? Along...

Moss - a system for detecting software plagiarism...

I was reading an online article today titled, "Busting 6 deadly security myths" which appeared on the Asia Computer Weekly (ACW) web site today. The article, by Michael Cohn, talks about how fast hackers can adapt their tools to take advantage of new security vulnerabilities. Hackers can...
Bill Gates - "Building Software That Is Interoperable By Design" Bill Gates, in a letter posted on Microsoft's web site, tells employees, customers, and others says "the solution that has proven consistently effective – and the one that yields the greatest success for developers today – is a strong commitment to interoperability".
