CD-ROMs never did make the impact we thought they would back in the day. But they were still an important step toward the internet, and I can't tell you how much fun had bringing the worlds of technology and entertainment together for what seemed like the first time! My latest post for Network World.
Forgotten ‘infotainment’ software finds a new home at the Computer History Museum—here’s why you should care.

There's a lot of hype around the Internet of Things, but when they start talking TRILLIONS I start paying attention. My latest for Network World.
Newly connected IoT devices expected to drive huge numbers, says IDC.

Apps are still a huuuuge market, but it's not growing as fast as it used to be--and Google and Facebook are swallowing up most of the available dollars. Maybe it's time to work on that cool chat bot instead of a new app? My latest post on Network World.
New IDC report says mobile app market will keep growing, but more slowly, and will be dominated by large companies.

Things are changing in software-land. IE is no longer on top, predictive analytics didn't predict Trump's success, and you can order gasoline from an app. (What could possibly go wrong?) All this and more, This Week in Modern Software.

Containers—you know, Docker and such—are awesome technology and offer many important advantages. That's why they're so darn hot right now. But it seems that many developers are still figuring out the best ways to take advantage of them. My latest post on Network World.
Despite widespread interest in containers, most developers remain unsure how to drive significant benefits from them, a new study finds.

Facebook is making bank on mobile ads. So don't sweat the dip in Apple's iPhone sales, mobile still rules. My latest at Network World.
Apple may be selling fewer iPhones, but Facebook’s huge gains once again confirm the power of mobile.

I bet there are more uses of the term "Ops" than you realized. Take a look and see how many are new to you. My latest post at New Relic.

Wondering what I was doing in Chicago earlier this Spring? Among other things, attending this cool cloud computing simulation run by Amazon Web Services. Everybody seemed to have a good time learning a lot of helpful cloud management strategies and tactics.
The cloud giant has created a clever simulation designed to teach real-world AWS skills.

If you could really get your "Country-as-a-Service," which country's services would you choose? And how would that choice disrupt borders, immigration, and politics?m My latest for Network World.
Just about everything is available as a service—even nationality—as Estonia shows with its Country as a Service (CaaS) .

My latest podcast tackles Apple vs. Facebook for the future of mobile, AWS's awesome numbers, Minecraft as the gateway game to a STEM career, and the Harvard Business Review on why every company has to think like a software company. Plus: BloomThat on scaling with New Relic, and a discount promo code for Mother's Day!
VP of Engineering Kevin Klein explains why technology has made the flower-delivery business more difficult, and how New Relic helps his company keep up with demand.

The automatic upgrade cycle has been broken, and the smartphone market will never be the same. My latest for Network World.
I love my iPhone 6 Plus—and that’s Apple’s problem.

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.
