As I sit here using my new MacBook Pro I am struck by the fact that we really need to cover some fundamentals â€¦ not sure how I connected the MacBook Pro thing, but it may have something to do with the fact that I am using a next generation piece of equiment that is still so solid at doing the basics. I guess I am hoping we can get you to a point like that â€” where you can do the nextgen stuff, but you do it with a full understanding of the basics. This week Iâ€™d like to step back and have us look at the basics related to both database and networking technologies. Weâ€™ll spend time Tuesday and Thursday looking at these critical pieces of technology â€” at the end of the day most of what happens in the world of computing is impacted by these two.
I think youâ€™ll find the way we go about it to be interesting to say the least. Be ready to try something new to learn about something very fundamental. Iâ€™d also like to get your Cluetrain Responses as weâ€™ll discuss that as well. See you on Tuesday! Oh, by the way, Iâ€™ve started posting the Historical Perspectives papers in the Assignments section. When you get to this page, just look for the link in the sidebar â€¦ I am not finished yet.
