How To Handle Negative Blog Comments, In 3 Easy Steps

I happened to babble online in Cheryl Connor's "hearing" about my (probably sole) superpower: an ability to turn an Internet troll into a human being in very short order.

She asked me for permission to share my wisdom (such as it is). Maybe you'll like it too.

I LOVE stuff like this! I bet you do too. #retrofuturology

It's 2015. But sometimes it feels like our futuristic dreams are stuck in the 1950s and 60s. And there's actually a good reason for that.

Rick Boucher talks of a bipartisan bill that both sides say is a good idea for net neutrality and for the Internet. Think dysfunction, says +Wayne Rash
 
Can a bipartisan bill that preserves net neutrality and Internet access as an information service really make it through a dysfunctional Congress even if both sides are for it? Former congressman Rick Boucher thinks so. But so far nobody has even introduced it. http://www.eweek.com/networking/iia-proposes-net-neutrality-legislation-to-solve-fcc-title-ii-dilemma.html

7 Essential Skills You Need to Succeed in an IT Career

As someone who has had a successful IT career since starting out in the mid-1990s, I agree wholeheartedly with all 7 of these.  So many people start out thinking that the only important one is #1 (technical acumen), when in fact, all of these are important, to varying degrees.

The Difference Between Confidence and Arrogance is Empathy

Oh, I so like this article!



The problem with arrogance is that it makes your world smaller. The more you dismiss people as incapable of understanding your idea, the easier it becomes to do again. You create a category that they fit into, and when you assess a new person you turn attention to yourself. Instead of sitting down with someone to search for common ground, you sit down with them and try to rapidly figure out whether they have a predisposition to understand anything that you’re telling them.

A Conversation with Druva Co-Founder Jaspreet Singh (Video and transcript, with +Robin Miller at +Slashdot )

We hear plenty about American software companies moving to India, but not a lot about Indian software companies moving here. Druva had good reasons for the move, the chief one being a financing deal with Sequoia Capital. Aside from that, though, Jaspreet says the talent pool -- not just developers but software marketing people and other important staffers -- is more concentrated in Silicon Valley than almost anywhere else in the world. "It's like Hollywood for geeks," Jaspreet says. This doesn't mean business is necessarily easy in the USA: Jaspreet ended up laying off his entire staff. Twice. And he made other mistakes as a young, new CEO bringing a company to life in a crowded field. 

Those mistakes, which Jaspreet shares freely with us, are like a business school "Start-Up Pitfalls" class. You may never want to do your own startup, but if you're a developer or otherwise involved with the software industry, there's a good chance that you'll have a chance to work for one at some point. And if you have that chance, you'll be glad you watched this video (or read the transcript) before you take the startup plunge.  #startups  
 
This was originally going to be an interview about the state of enterprise-level backup software in an increasingly edge computing-focused world, but we rapidly drifted into talking about how Druva started in Pune (near Bangalore) and ended up moving to Silicon Valley. We hear plenty about American ...
