Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine  has selected Bluenog ICE to provide content management system (CMS), portal and business integration (BI) capabilities in one integrated suite.

HJF provides innovative services to meet the unique needs of military medicine, including research administration, program management and staffing, clinical trials, education support and event planning.

I read through the recently posted piece by Sam Gustin on AOL's beta site, Daily Finance, looking for the big deal after the headline:  Microsoft 'indoctrinates' Best Buy workers with anti-Linux 'lies.'

Uh, what?

Making the Most of Multiple Cores

Posted by groenfeldt in Untagged

have a piece which will be posted soon on how Intel and SunGard have worked to adapt software to run on multiple cores, 1,024 in this case. So I was interested in Stephen H. Wildstrom's note in Businessweek on Apple's OS upgrade, Snow Leopard.

"Much of the effort behind Snow Leopard went into building a software platform for the future. Most new computers have 2 or 4 processors, and that will soon increase to 8, 16, or more. But today only the most skilled programmers know how to use this power efficiently when they are writing applications that users crave. A new technology in Snow Leopard, called Grand Central Dispatch, is designed to make it easier for developers to create programs using multiple processors, reducing the wait for a processor to finish a task. The result should be more powerful and smarter software for everything from games to home automation."

Is it just me, or does Guy Kawasaki's idea for a peel-off sticker on a business card seem completely useless?

Apparently the idea is that a recipient will so want to remember you that he will peel the company logo sticker off the card and place it somewhere memorable. Or not.

ZapFlash has a provocative opening about rich Internet applications in its latest newsletter, entititled "The Dissolution of the Rich Internet Application (RIA) Market,"  but the conclusion is a bit tamer.

The writers, Jason Bloomberg & Ronald Schmelzer, note that the "concept of RIA spans the gamut of applications from those that barely have any richness to them at all in one extreme, to considerably rich and interactive applications that made use of a wide range of RIA capabilities in the other."

Nothing beats video games for stressing out hardware, and you can see what high end gamers are doing with Intel in an online magazine, Visual Adrenaline.

It includes some impressive references, such as:
