Many large companies "haven't written a line of code in 15 years," says EMC president Jeremy Burton. That could cause big issues as developer increasingly rule IT.
As the so-called information generation places new demands on companies, many admit that they lack the ability to respond.

I know! Let's pay coders really huge salaries and give them loads of perks, benefits, and long-term job security. Who's with me?

What climate change can teach us about gender discrimination and Ellen Pao's Kleiner Perkins lawsuit
Ellen Pao lost her case against her former employer, but that doesn't mean women don't face real obstacles in the tech world.

Dane Jasper, CEO and co-founder of California ISP Sonic, says the real issue of net neutrality is competition between big carriers and smaller players, not just carriers and content providers.

Can't we all just get along?
Users love shadow IT, but IT departments hate the very idea. It doesn't have to be that way.

+Fredric Paul  For all rational issues the solution is easy and most simple. Political ones? God help!

Politics, not the FCC or even the courts, will determine the ultimate fate of Net Neutrality. Which is, like, the worst possible outcome.
The FCC's decision to regulate broadband providers as common carriers is just another step on the long trek from net neutrality to net confusion.

Tip #1: if you're only bringing one device, make sure it's a phablet!
I was worried that traveling lightly with a single device would be too limiting, but it turns out that getting by is surprisingly easy.

Sometimes, vagueness and case-by-case responses are the best way to deal with change and uncertainty. We're about to to find out if that's true for Net Neutrality. My latest for Network World.
The Commission’s 400-page document somehow still leaves lots of room for interpretation. And that could be the point!

It's about time hardware went open source, too, don't you think?
HP joins Juniper, Dell, and others in the networking industry to support Facebook's Open Compute Project. As disaggregation grows, the days of expensive, proprietary networking hardware are numbered.

Phablet owners use more data and kill-switches reduce phone thefts. Who could have seen THAT coming? I did, and it proves that the decisions smartphone vendors make have real consequences. My latest for Network World.
These examples clearly illustrate how smartphone makers' decisions influence how the world uses mobile devices.

How big can a smartphone get?
Apple's amazing quarter proves yet again that people want phablets, not tablets.

The MoMA is justly famous for its amazing collection of art. And it deserves that reputation. But its customer service leaves much to be desired. Art lovers are treated like cattle, waiting in hour-long lines to check bags, for example. And just try to get close to the most popular pieces of art. You're likely to be jostled out of the way by a over-eager tourists and whiny children. If the art collection wasn't one of the best in the world, I'd probably never go back.
