Implementing Business Processes with OSWorkflow

"The high-rise towers of Reynholm Industries are full of go-getters, success stories, and winners... apart from in the basement.

While their beautiful colleagues work in fantastic surroundings, Jen, Roy and Moss lurk below ground, scorned and mocked by their co-workers as geeky losers, doomed never to make it back into normal society."

This is really hilarious and highly recommended for geeks. :)

We consider an idea as something which comes to our mind as magic. What we don't realize is the process that every one have gone through before producing an idea. In this book, James Webb Young describes this process as five easy steps. It is a very thin book and a very enjoyable reading.

Along with that, I also made some notes as reference and put them online.

Read BookNotes : A Technique for Producing Ideas

There are lots of web applications which allows you to tag web pages. But there is none which lets you clip a single section of the web page and save it for future reference. Another excellent web 2.0 application.

Visit ClipMarks

Why Clipmarks?
* Because you can highlight, tear and save parts of pages from
magazines and newspapers, so why shouldn't you do the same thing on the
web?
* Because the fact there is something on a page that interests you doesn't mean the entire page is worth saving or sharing.
* Because trying to remember why you bookmarked something often feels like a guessing game.

This is something for the news freak. If you are always looking for the latest news then there are few places where you can keep you eyes to get everything.

The first source of everything new is digg.com as you'll notice that there are several dedicated people trying to get their news to the front page.
TopStories
Digg Front page
Digg Spy - A new feature where you can see the live activity in terms of news submitted and then digged by the users.

Apart from digg, you can track del.icio.us for everything that people are tagging.
LiveMarks: A service developed by Alex Bosworth which tracks del.icio.us.
Populicio.us: Another site which gives you a static view of the things that is tagged by del.icio.us

Some other general news websites which headlines popular news:
TailRank
Memeorandum
Topix
Google News

For .NET News, I personally follow Larkware as the latest news source.
Another website that is new but growing is DotNetKicks which is built on the same model as of digg.

How do you track news?

Not from Microsoft, but Steve Gibson has the patch for this new exploit.

Download the patch from http://www.grc.com/sn/notes-020.htm

I also highly recommend the SecurityNow podcast by Steve Gibson, it is one of the few podcasts that I listen  regularly.
