Bob Frankston writes an essay titled “It’s About Connectivity Not The Internet!” on the SATN website. He puts forth an interesting idea that the Internet is becomeing more centralized in control, but that the innovation at the edges is what is far more important: “Rather than building directly upon basic Internet protocols we can and must build upon connectivity and thus avoid dependence upon the IP address and other constructs that limit to early design decisions and work-arounds… It’s about connectivity.” Interesting read.

Just a reminder that this Wednesday, February 25th. The main meeting starts at 7 PM, People drift in and the networking and socializing begins around 6:30. We finish by 9 PM.
Guy Pardoe demonstrates the use of selected third party ActiveX controls (from www.DBI-Tech.com) for calendars and scheduling functionality. Solutions::Schedule 7.0 is an excellent component for applications where you need to handle scheduling of resources. He’ll cover many of the different views and visual presentations of this control, the ability to work with XML data, and output to JPG images. He’ll also take a look at Calendar Tools 3.0: six easy to use, drop-in calendar components, providing functionality for presenting, selecting and managing dates and times.
