http://twitter.com/fuatkircaali Today marks the 30th day of Ulitzer's public beta. We had an amazing month and perhaps one of the most widely discussed launches of a "new media" site. Gartner recently asked, "Will Ulitzer dominate news content on the Web eventually?" The answer is yes, and I'll explain why. First, I'd like to share some of the 30-day stats with you. We had more than 140,000 visitors who read 197,000 pages of articles, blogs and news stories. The syndicated page views (outside the Ulitzer domain) exceeded 1,369,983 page views. The legendary technology reporter Maureen O'Gara was the most read Ulitzer author with 231,600 rolling page views, and we syndicated more than 3,000 Ulitzer stories.

Who Are The All-Time Heroes of i-Technology?

I wonder how many people, as I did, found themselves thrown into confusion by the death last week of Jean Ichbiah (pictured), inventor of Ada.  Learning that the inventor of a computer programming language is already old enough to have lived 66 years (Ichbiah was 66 when he succumbed to brain cancer) is a little like learning that your 11-year-old daughter has grown up and left home or that the first car you ever bought no longer is legal because it runs on gasoline in an age where all automobiles must run on water. How can something as novel, as new, as a computing language possibly already be so old-fangled that an early practitioner like Ichbiah can already no longer be with us? The thought was so disquieting that it took me immediately back to the last time I wrote about Ichbiah, and indeed about Ada Lovelace for whom his language was named. It was in the context ...

SCO sues IBM over Linux, seeks $1 billion

(IDG News Service) — Unix developer The SCO Group has filed a lawsuit against IBM Corp. charging it with misappropriation of trade secrets, unfair competition and other illegal actions related to IBM's Linux business. The suit seeks at least US$1 billion in damages. IBM obtained its Unix license in 1985 from AT&T Corp., which developed the operating system, SCO said in a statement. In 1995 SCO purchased the rights and ownership of Unix and thus became the "successor in interest" to the Unix licenses doled out by AT&T to IBM, Hewlett-Packard Co. and others, SCO said. In its suit filed Thursday in the State Court of Utah, SCO alleges that IBM tried to destroy the economic value of Unix, particularly Unix on Intel Corp.-based servers, in order to benefit its Linux services business. It charges IBM with misappropriation of trade secrets, tortious interference, unf... (more)

Instant Professionalism Online Despite Yourself...with Ulitzer

Personal Branding on Ulitzer I read an article by an author on Ulitzer.com and was amazed at the professional image it provided him. I immediately researched Ulitzer to see if there was yet hope for me. I am a technology blogger on the subject of mobile computing strategies.  As I was doing research I came across the author Ian Thain, a fellow mobile computing blogger, who had a very professional website on Ulitzer (www.ulitzer.com). Professional envy motivated me to investigate this thing called Ulitzer. Ian's website looked like he had spent a great deal of time and money on it - all things I am short on. I carefully studied Ian's website to see how it was set up.  It looked like an expensive industry portal with colorful graphics, animation and industry news. It had tabs that filtered articles, by most popular, by date, etc.  I have blogged for over 5 years so... (more)

Building a Secure Corporate Environment

This article is an excerpt from Larstan's The Black Book on Corporate Security. This new book is available in bookstores and the first chapter is available for free at www.theblackbooks.com. Printed with permission from Larstan Publishing, Inc. All rights reserved. Copyright 2005. Your company needs a secure data infrastructure, but how, exactly, do you set one up from scratch? Here, a former FBI agent who now serves as an information security officer reveals the best methods for creating a system that takes control of your information. I'm a battle-hardened veteran of DMZ skirmishes. No, I'm not talking about the "demilitarized zone" imposed between North and South Korea following the Korean War in the early 1950s. Among information security officers such as myself, a DMZ is the euphemism for a computer host or small network inserted as a neutral buffer that separa... (more)

Andreessen Turns VC

Netscape wunderkind Marc Andreessen, now about to turn a demographically middle-aged 38, has officially turned venture capitalist, a counter-culture move since the dot.com bust trashed the sport. Andreessen and fellow Netscape veteran Ben Horowitz have raised a relatively modest $300 million – which seems to be considered a goodly sum in these dire times – and have set up Andreessen Horowitz as they’ve been publicly threatening to do since February. Andreessen told the Financial Times they could have raised $500 million or $600 million but felt a twosome couldn’t handle that kind of money. They reportedly only intended to raise $250 million. Andreessen and Horowitz have been playing angel investors for about five years now and have spread their personal wealth around some 40-odd start-up including Twitter, Digg, Ning, Rightscale and Linkin, some of them famous nam...
