Recently, Geospatial Intelligence Forum Magazine asked me for my thoughts on
the role of cloud computing in the future of geospatial intelligence.My
response was recently published in their December 2010 print issue and
"In my opinion, Cloud computing is the future of geospatial intelligence.
Through the processing, exploitation and dissemination process, GEOINT links
data about a specific place to a specific time. The goal of this linkage is
to create actionable information, and success is often a matter of having
sufficient information technology resources. While cloud computing is not a
revolution in technology, it does represent a step change in how IT resources
are provisioned, accessed, manipulated and consumed. If leveraged properly,
this new approach will greatly enhance our ability to create actionable

Microsoft has now two tricks in the Cloud, PaaS and IaaS. Not satisfied with
just being a PaaS vendor Microsoft began to sell IaaS as well. Two years
after breaking into the clouds with Windows Azure Microsoft wants now to
challenge the IaaS leader, Amazon.com.
Amazon.com has matured and Microsoft is a relatively new comer, but Microsoft
has deep pockets and a solid record in PaaS and it will be an interesting
development to watch.
How did this Microsoft getting into IaaS happen? Microsoft broadened its
cloud repertoire with persistent virtual machines; virtual networking and
support for Linux instances. In days to come we will hear more about it. Read
the breaking news on Redmondmag.com (July 2012, Page 2).

Performing this task will resolve a problem that occurs when using NetBeans
to configure a JDBC Connection Pool and JDBC Resource for GlassFish. The
default installation of NetBeans and GlassFish results in the naming of the
JDBC configuration file as sun-resources.xml when it should be named
glassfish-resources.xml. This is a Windows only problem.
The first step is to install NetBeans if you have not already done so. I
recommend the Java EE version. Download and install. All the defaults during
install are acceptable. Install GlassFish but it is not necessary to install
When GlassFish is installed with NetBeans it is configured as available to
NetBeans. You can see this in the Services tab under Servers.
While this instance of the GlassFish server will perform as expected when
creating web or EJB applications I have uncovered an issue with the naming of

Hybrid tools try to resolve the debate of …
“Should you write a mobile web application which will render on multiple
platforms without significant change but won’t be able to take advantage on
“Should you create platform specific native application to fully utilize
the power of the device but increase your effort?”
The basic premise of hybrid approach is that you can have your cake and eat
it to. In this approach you use the browser control and create a shell
application which is then used to render HTML pages. Since most of the
popular phone browsers are Webkit based (Microsoft is an exception), they are
expected to have similar behavior making you task simpler.
To access the native features of the handset, you need to create APIs in the

It isn't very often - no, wait, it is completely unique, having never
happened before - that I write to each and every one of my LinkedIn contacts
simultaneously. But as the proverb goes, "circumstances alter cases."
The "circumstance" that causes me to risk Web-wide ire at my misuse and abuse
of Reid Hoffman's gallantly unspoiled business tool is the arrival of the
365th day of survival since being operated on for pancreatic cancer. One
entire year! Never has a year taken so long, never have 365 days seemed more
like 1,365. But a year it is, and given the givens it deserves to be marked
in some way. This is my way.
Worry not, I am not going to hit you up for money. (Even though the
Pancreatic Cancer Action Network could most certainly always use it.) I am
not even going to hit you up for emotion.
Nope. Far worse than that, I am going to hit you up - briefly - for
