As of last night Deki Wiki officially has support for the following languages:
I have a laptop from 3 years ago and I am installing Ubuntu on it to replace Windows. I had some issues originally that helped move me in the direction. It had some major driver errors. I formatted the drive using the windows install CD to fix the error I was receiving as it was stopping me from installing Ubuntu completely.
Once I get Ubuntu configured I’m going to do a post on awesome plugins and also links for people that are interested in starting with Linux but need a boost for starting.
YAY!!! Lifehacker did a blog post on stopping the automatic restart timebomb that occurs after windows have performed an update. See details here
When I was at Linux World I sat in on a good session about BI(Business Intelligence) that talked about different open source software like Pentaho,
Linux World just finished up and it was a great time. Went to a couple of parties including rPath and Creative Commons, and got a chance to hang out in the Novell booth where we were stationed. It was really good to demo the new Hayes release of Deki Wiki as it is such an awesome product, and did I mention…it is FREE to download. I had the link in my previous post but definitely check it out:
On a side note, the Google squad scoured San Diego and now it has been street mapped on google maps. It is pretty cool. They are doing some awesome things with the mapping. To check it out go to http://maps.google.com and search for San Deigo, CA…zoom in and then click on street view in the upper right corner, then click on any street and it will zoom in on it with real pictures.
That is all for now.
We just release Deki Wiki Hayes as a virtual appliance today. This is a great release for developers and end users. With this new release, we have a new support plan structure. There aren’t any restirctions on users as there was before in regards to licensing. The software is 100% free, we recommend the support plan because of the updates that we notify the users of in regards to updates to the software and the stack. Check
I am at Linux World right now and am enjoying every second of it. I haven’t been to Linux World before so this is an awesome experience.
So I’ve been trying to find a good ISO burning tool as I needed to create an Ubuntu Live CD and low and behold the only computer that had ISO burning capabilities is the computer that I have to install Ubuntu on because windows crashed, servers me right for depending on windows. Anyhoo, check out this slick little app, it works like a charm and can have you burning ISO disks in no time:
I was talking with a friend of mine yesterday and he said something that got me thinking. I was talking about an old business model for a company I had a while back and had mentioned that we tried subscription based but that is a hard model and I was left with advertising. My friend said, “well you could have done the Web 2.0 model”. I inquired what it was, he stated, “don’t charge anything and wait for Google to buy you out.” It made me think about the current web 2.0 businesses and how there are some out there that are holding their breath waiting for the call from the big leagues(Google). There are a few companies out there though that may have started off on that road but because of different issues decided to work on turning the company into a business model that didn’t rely on Google. To be honest, all business models in technology have some sort of acquisition factored into the exit strategy unless you are large enough to be the buyer, but I see more businesses putting a strong effort on coming out with great technology that businesses and consumers can use while charging an affordable price to make it financially feasible. What does this mean for the Web 2.0 movement? It means that eventually there will be a sifting of businesses and only the ones with a strong concept that are based on needs of consumers and businesses in the long run, will thrive. The rest of the companies will be phased out or acquired to be meshed into the surviving companies.
