With Microsoft finally making a major acquisition move in social software, are we now seeing the roll up of the entire social business industry? Or is this just an minor story in a vast parade of change when it comes to how enterprises are moving to social software?
According to Canadian engineers at Queen's University, there are now more than 8,000 satellites in orbit around the Earth. Of course, if they stop to work correctly, these satellites will not be able to be repaired from the ground and will become space junk. So these researchers have developed a robotic repair system to fix ailing satellites. Right now, they're writing software to track these satellites. Their tracking software would then be used by an Autonomous Space Servicing Vehicle (ASSV) 'to grasp the ailing satellite from its orbit and draw it into the repair vehicle's bay. Once there, remote control from the ground station can be used for the repair.' I'm somewhat skeptical about the idea, considering that the satellites in orbit have been launched by various countries and companies using very different technologies. But read more...
Yesterday the BBC ran a story about a computer virus making it into orbit, which I read with incredulity. OK, it's a nice silly season story on the surface, but what really got me was that NASA doesn't have antivirus on its laptops:"The laptops carried by astronauts reportedly do not have any anti-virus software on them to prevent infection," said the BBC.

T-Mobile's latest connected handheld is the first from a UK network operator with a built-in GPS receiver. The lack of Wi-Fi is a major drawback, however; we'd also like to see the wide-area connectivity upgraded from GPRS to 3G.
After a few days of immersion in Sun's orbit, you have to take a step back to access whether the well-crafted presentations about grids , Java, Solaris 10 , open source , subscription pricing and processor threads are the road to riches or a black hole in the making. I admit I am a fan of the grid infrastructure and software-as-a-service models, and the notion of commodity-like pricing (not that the underlying technology is a commodity) is on the horizon.
