Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

macworld announcements

Something that, even only a few hours after Steve Jobs' keynote at MacWorld, has already been blogged to death. But I'd like to keep a link here for my own use. :-). Here is the main pointer to the coverage of the MacWorld announcements. A web browser called 'Safari' (Safari? And some people said I was crazy for calling my product 'spaces'), and the super-cool looking new PowerBook with a 17-inch display. The larger story seems to be the higher prevalence of software announcements, which is reasonable: soon, the biggest innovations will happen in the interconnection of devices, how they exchange data, and how PC programs leverage data received from multiple sources. That means software. Job's 'digital hub' idea might not be new, or terribly original, but it's probably the most clear description of these concepts that I've seen so far.

on spaces

The last couple of days have been slightly crazy. A lot of feedback on the new version of spaces (specially from people on the mailing list that have been a great help) and one nasty bug resulting of the database change from 1.5.x to 1.6 have kept me quite busy. I also found two new weblog entries on spaces: one comment from Henning (whose weblog has mostly to do with Lotus Domino, and is quite interesting, at least for me :)) and one from Ray (Ray, by the way, has been thinking along similar lines with his concept of Workspace server, which is quite cool, as are many of the other musings on his weblog).

Back to spaces: I am trying to complete a new version (that would be 1.7) by the end of the week. There are a few bugs that, while they don't appear normally while alpha testing (mostly they have to do with doing operations on large amounts of data), they can be quite annoying. More soon on this. The beta is getting closer!

doublethink is coming

Declan McCullagh has an interesting op-ed piece in this week about the dangers posed by the newfound insterest of the US Government in spying everyone, and what technologies they could be using in the future.
