Doug Kaye's thoughts on web services, web hosting and managed services.

What's Wrong With This Picture? Would you pay nearly $1,000 per employee for a knowledge-management portal for your organization? If you did, would you be proud of it? According to a story in InternetWeek, that's what MWH Global did. And since employees "proved reluctant to use it," the company eliminated the existing email system (Notes) and replaced it with web-based email that forces employees to interact with the KM system. Does that sound right to you?

Can't We All Just Get Along? Lest you think that the Internet is run by grownups, and that peering is a well-managed and standardized practice, read how Sprint and Conxion are in a pissing contest over peering, fees and technology. [Source: Tomalak's Realm]

The Doug Files. To check out Google's usenet archives, I searched for my own postings. It seems that over the past 18 years I've mostly posted questions, not answers. The oldest one I found was this one to net.micro.pc in 1985, looking for some C runtime libraries. (We were developing a terminal emulator at the time.) But my favorite is this response on net.misc in 1983 to a post in which I wrote that "I expect ADA to replace UNIX and C in the multi-user multi-task column. [...] Remember, 'C' is really just a high-level assembler language for the PDP-11." I sure hope my analysis and forecasting has improved. Fellow bloggers: Can you find your most-embarassing moment on Usenet?
