Friends of my friends

As Nop has wrotte friends of my friends are not (necessarily) my friends, for sure you may compose an acronym imitating FOF but this is too geek even for me.

Nop says that he receives a lot of Facebook requests for getting in touch with people who is friend of somebody else and not known by himself. (Do I wrotte properly this sentence? ... never know...) He also says that this social-networks are not social but unsocial... and I agree... as long as you use those networks you don't get in touch in real world, what is more social than the real world relationship?

I've been in Facebook but I'm no longer, it is very time consuming and very often it tries to access to personal data or such things. I'm even considering how useful is LinkedIn or Xing.

In my humble opinion it is true that network is changing a lot how our world is, but sometimes, we believe that everything comming from the Internet has a positive touch: we shouldn't loose our critical point of view... neve.

What nobody says when they choose MS

London Stock Exchange adopted a MS software solution, it was an application with strong demand for real time execution. It was announced as usual, hardware company announced it, and for sure MS takes it as a case of study.

What nobody likes to asume is a bad decision. On IT environments a bad decision may had a deep impact on business processes. You have a look by googling what has happened with London Stock Exchange or you may go straight to the point by reading why London Stock Exchange abandon Microsoft and switch to Linux.

One of my mottos is: we're not the first ones in having such a problem, sure we aren't and then I encourage my colleagues to see what somebody has done before to solve a similar problem. By the way if everybody jumps from the window it doesn't mean we've to do it.

If you're interested about how New York Stock Exchange deals with IT to keep their systems running you gonna know they uses Linux...

So... what else could I say... Up to you.
