- Google Revealed: The IT Strategy That Makes It Work by Thomas Claburn (Management News by InformationWeek)
Fascinating article on google's unconventional buisness practices. Google is different. And it's different not only because its thinking is original and its applications unique--witness search queries morphed into a lobby display of bursting color--but because the company's unconventional IT strategy makes it so. Commodity hardware and free software hardly seem like the seeds of an empire, yet Google has turned them into an unmatched distributed computing platform that supports its wildly popular search engine, plus a burgeoning number of applications. We used to call them consumer applications, but Google changed that. Businesses also use them because, well, Google is different.
A unique mix of internally developed software, open source, made-to-order hardware, and people management is the secret behind the search engine.

- Driving Windows x64: A 15,000-Mile Checkup, with Tips and Workarounds by Alan Zeichick (December 6, 2005)
If you're considering running 64-bit Windows, now's the time to make that transition. The platform is solid, hardware and software support is mature, and the performance is incredible. It's been about eight months since I started running 64-bit Windows as my everyday platform. The transition from my trusty 32-bit workstation to a new HP box with dual AMD Opteron processors and Windows XP Professional, x64 Edition, has truly been a platform migration: There were workarounds, a learning curve, and some frustrations with hardware and software support.

- Extensis (now on one software) Mask Pro 3 - http://www.creativemac.com/
Masking is one of those chores that only the most ascetic of us can appreciate, and then only when we have something really awful to atone for. It's laborious. It's time-consuming. And it's sometimes futile, a fact many of us discover only after hours of attempting to mask out individual strands of hair at 800x magnification. If only a piece of software would come along that could help alleviate the pain.... Well, in fact, if you haven't already guessed, there is such a piece of software. Actually there are several. But today we're going to take a look at one that I consider not only to be an outstanding masking product, but a stellar example of how productivity tools for designers ought to be made: Extensis Mask Pro 3.

- Wiki - From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A wiki (IPA: [ˈwɪ.kiː] <WICK-ee> or [ˈwiː.kiː] <WEE-kee>) is a type of website that allows users to easily add, remove, or otherwise edit and change some available content, sometimes without the need for registration. This ease of interaction and operation makes a wiki an effective tool for collaborative authoring. The term wiki can also refer to the collaborative software itself (wiki engine) that facilitates the operation of such a website (see wiki software), or to certain specific wiki sites, including the computer science site (and original wiki), WikiWikiWeb, and the online encyclopedias such as Wikipedia. The first wiki, WikiWikiWeb, is named after the "Wiki Wiki" line of Chance RT-52 buses in Honolulu International Airport, Hawaii.
