Web 1.0 allowed convenient access to documents; Web 2.0 allowed convenient interaction with read-write web applications.
Now are we returning to more consumer-server model, more granular and resource-based, but primarily read-only?
And as for the President I don't think he is the devil. I think he has a naive simplistic view of the power of Government to improve people's lives, but that makes him wrong, not evil. In the end, I think he may have done a great thing for the country and shown everyone there are definite limits to what the Federal Government can accomplish and should even attempt.
This just demonstrates it.
I can guarantee you that Issa is not considered a "cross over" candidate.
And nothing in this accounts for his rude, and unbecoming behavior.
On topic, I am on the side of non-Organic farmers; if you care about cross-pollination you do something about it. I haven't seen any argument to show non-Organic farmers are doing anything wrong. Please enlighten me if I'm missing something (most definitely I am, I'm not pro-Organic nor a farmer).
I currently live in St. Louis, Missouri, though I have planted my butt in other parts of the country (including Washington, Oregon, Boston, Vermont, Arizona, and San Francisco). My focus has been on books about technology, but I'm currently working in other topics such animal welfare, the environment, sustainable agriculture (including issues related to food safety), and bad politics. But then, everyone writes about bad politics.
At this moment, I'm finishing a book titled "Ringling Brothers: The Greatest Show in Court". It's about the 13+ court battle between Feld Entertainment (parent to the Ringling Brothers circus) and various animal welfare groups. The court cases that form the basis for the book are centered around elephants performing in circuses. The book has thrills, chills, accusations of conspiracy, and fascinating trips through our legal and regulatory systems. Oh, and elephants. Lots of elephants.
All my non-tech books will be self-published, as well as some newer works related to technology. More on these in the near future.
