                          Image by windley via Flickr In one of those scheduling goofs that look good 6 months beforehand, but utterly silly up close, I've schedule this month's CTO Breakfast just a day after the Kynetx Impact conference.

                          Tomorrow is the CTO Breakfast. I know, kind of late notice, but this one snuck up on me. I've been heads down with a major ope-heart surgery of the Kynetx rules engine. I'll tell you all about it tomorrow at the breakfast--refactoring code provides lots of opportunity for reflection on software development. The breakfast will be held in the usual place (Novell Cafeteria in Provo - map) at 8am. Anyone interested in how information technology is used to build products or run companies.

                          At this morning's CTO Breakfast Kay Johansan announced her upcoming Agile Roots conference in Salt Lake City on June 15-16. This looks like a high quality confernce and it's nice to see it local. Tyler Whitaker also demonstrated the new graphing capabilities in ErrorStack. As someone building a distributed system, I love the idea of ErrorStack--a cloud-based error system that just does errors and does them well. I'll probably start using it to track errors for Kynetx. We got a look at the phone that Google gave out at IO yesterday. Someone who was there and got one showed

                          This month's CTO Breakfast will be held on Friday, April 24. Our usual venue (Novell's cafeteria) is unavailable that day.

We'll do the usual thing on Friday. Anyone with an interest in technology products and companies it welcome to come.

                          Not Getting Things Done(click to enlarge) There was a pretty big crowd at this morning's CTO Breakfast. Sam Curran had spent some time building an application on Google App Engine, so we had him demo his app and show us the code. Overall, Google Apps looks like a very nice piece of infrastructure for building Web applications. The database integration with Big Table and Google's authentication platform add some good tools for quickly building applications. We got into a pretty large discussion of the pros and cons of Google Apps, Amazon Web services, dedicated hosting, and so on. None

                          Scott Lemon shows off his XO Laptop(click to enlarge) We started off this morning discussing AsteriskNow, an easy install of the Asterisk VoIP system. Scott Lemon and I talked to Jared Smith a while back on that. Apparently it's pretty easy to set up and get working. Scott claims 3 hours start to finish. I brought up ProQuo, a service that aims to stop junk mail. I signed up on Halloween and I've got to say I've noticed a real drop in the amount of junk mail I get. Score one for us! Scott brought his XO laptop and

We've got a few really cool things lined up: Scott Lemon is going to give a short tutorial on writing Facebook applications Scott also is going to bring his XO Laptop (one laptop per child) OK, so basically, it's the Scott Lemon show. But I'm sure it will lead to plenty of good discussion. So come prepared to learn and to talk about the cool things you've seen since last we met.

                          CTO Breakfast Report

                          As we did introductions today, a surprising number of people were remodeling their basement (time of the year, I guess). Consequently we ended up talking about home theaters set ups for the first part of the meeting. Interesting tidbit: maximum run length for HDMI is 50 feet. We talked about Facebook Beacon for a while. There was much more discussion of social networks in general than of Beacon for a while, but then we dove into the meat of the power of recommendations and the vast value in coloring the social graph with meta data--including trust data. Kids see

                          CTO Breakfast Recap

                          The first item on today's schedule was to get an update on the EMC acquisition of Berkeley Data Systems. Scott gave us a report on his recent trip to the Millenials conference last month. This led to a discussion of workplace hiring and the differences in hiring kids out of school right now. They don't ask about salary nearly as much as they ask about challenges, number of supervisors, and so on. They want multiple assignments so that they can move from one to another as they get bored or hit a roadblock. We had a discussion of Scratch,

                          CTO Breakfast Report for August 2007

                          At this morning's CTO breakfast we talked about: Working from home--both from the standpoint of employees and employers. The experiences were all over the map--positive and negative. My experience converting physical machines to virtual machines. Booting DOS to recover old data and play old games. iPhone and Syncing--the group consensus was that syncing needs to be faster and happen over Bluetooth. I got the impression that slow syncing was more of a problem for Windows users than Mac users. Whether this is because of higher expectations because of positive experiences with ActiveSync or real slowness, I'm not sure. Comcast's

                          CTO Breakfast Report

                          The first item of discussion at today's CTO Breakfast was iPhone features and unfeatures. A few of us had one. I passed mine around for people to play with. We also discussed some other devices, like the Blackberry Curve. Apparently the voice recognition on the Curve is very good. Scott Lemon brought up openmoko, a hardware device for building open phones. Looks cool. The discussion of the iPhone's lack of GPS led to a great discussion of why GPS is cool. Someone brought up location reminders: "Next time I'm at Home Depot, remind me to pick up..." We talked

                          CTO Breakfast on Friday

                          The next CTO Breakfast will happen on June 29, 2007 from 8:00 until 10:00 at the Novell Cafeteria, Building G, Provo Campus. You're invited! You don't have to be a CTO--just interested in products and technology. Given the coincidence of the date--Apple's iPhone will be release at 6pm that day, I'm sure that will be a topic of discussion. Also, Phil Burns had a "map of the Internet" he wanted to show off. Knowing Phil, I'm sure it will be interesting. Please put these future dates on your calendar: Jul 20 (Friday) Aug 23 (Thursday) Sep 27 (Thursday) If

                          At the May 2007 CTO Breakfast

                          We had the May CTO Breakfast today. There was a good group and some great discussion. I started off by talking about the Utopia install at my house. No one else at the meeting has Utopia yet, so there was some interest in how the install went and how well the service works. We also got into a discussion of Mozy. Of course, Tyler wasn't here this time, so we couldn't pump him for info. A general discussion of backup methods, drives, and programs ensued. I brought up Fuse, a cool way of building file systems in user space.

                          CTO Breakfast Report: The No-Employee Business

                          At this months' CTO Breakfast we had a long discussion about preparing students for careers in software this morning. We debated how much students need to know real tools like Subversion, Eclipse, Ant, and so on versus knowing how to design. I'm not convinced that the two are separable, which was another thread in the discussion. No decisions, naturally, but informative to me and I hope others. This led to a discussion of off shoring which then led to a longer discussion on switching from a reliance on paychecks to living from multiple revenue streams. Of course, this is

                          CTO Breakfast Report

                          We had the monthly CTO Breakfast this morning--perhaps for the last time in it's usually place. There was a good group present and some fun discussion. Bruce Fryer's brought up an ironic encounter with a word-of-mouth marketing company. The person who runs the marketing for a prominent WOM company somehow didn't get Linked-In and who social networks work. Funny. We got into a discussion of new media. I brought up the Bear Sterns report I blogged about the other day and it's breakdown of the media pipeline. There's a great opportunity in the "content packaging" space--although I wonder if

                          CTO Breakfast for November and December

                          This Thursday will be the CTO breakfast for November and December. We'll hold it at 8am in the usual place (Executive Conference Room of Building L at Canyon Park Technology Center). For more information on location, including maps, please see the CTO Breakfast page. Things that are on my mind include building reservations systems, reputation, and next week's Internet Identity Workshop. Come prepared to discuss what's on your mind. Future breakfasts will be held on the following dates: January 25 (Thursday) February 15 (Thursday) March 22 (Thursday) As far as location for these meetings goes, I'll let you know

                          CTO Breakfast Venue

                          It's been a good run, but after almost two years, the executive conference room at the Canyon Park Technology Center will no longer be available for our monthly CTO Breakfasts. Canyon Park has leased Building L to UVSC and the restrictions that UVSC is placing on its use make it unpalatable. First, they want to charge us $50 per month to use the conference room unless we cater breakfast through them. Second, they want me to purchase insurance. We could probably work all that out, but it would mean a lot of administrative overhead in signing contracts, working out

                          CTO Breakfast Report for September

                          Carl Youngblood told us of his experience as the sole technical person in a small construction loan wholesaling company. He's building a Rails application to automate the process and using an Indian outsourcing company to do much of the work under his direction. I was fascinated to hear how he had managed to set up an outsourcing contract and managed the work as a small shop. I mentioned that Yukihiro Matsumoto, or Matz, the creator or Ruby will be giving the colloquium in the BYU CS Department on Oct 19th. Eric Smith gave us a run down of Control4,

                          May CTO Breakfast Report

                          We spent a good deal of time talking about offsite backup and things like Jungle Disk. Jungle Disk is a application for Windows, OSX, and Linux that uses Amazon's S3 as the storage substrate. Bruce brought up Verisign's PIP, an OpenID service. This is particularly cool, I think, because its shows there's some momentum behind user-centric ID when big companies start to jump in. Michael Graves, of Verisign, was at IIW2006 and he talks about PIP on his blog. We discussed how to build good teams and companies. We were surprised to see that getting it right the first

                          April CTO Breakfast Report

                          Today we did something different at the CTO breakfast and brought a projector for 5 minute lightening demos. Nathan Conger from Novell went first and showed the new SUSE Enterprise Linux Desktop. We saw Beta 10. This is available from OpenSUSE.org. Nice integrated wireless network management. Virtual desktops are a rotating cube. Windows warp when you drag them. Windows can live "on the corner" of the cube. An official DVD player will ship with the final version. Window transparency built-in. Expose-like behavior. All-in-all, pretty flashy. Support for Visual Basic macros in OpenOffice. Windows users now have to envy SUSE

                          March CTO Breakfast Report

                          This morning's CTO breakfast had around 30 people in attendance. As always, the conversations was geeky and varied. Here are a few things I took notes on. We had a discussion of Ruby and how it's always at the bottom of the lisp. The facts of the matter, however that in most Web applications (where Ruby seems to have found it's sweet spot) the CPU and language aren't the bottleneck. What is? Database communication. Someone mentioned that this podcast with Jamis Buck that discusses the scalability of Ruby Web apps. We had lots of discussion on virtualization. I brought

                          March's CTO Breakfast

                          Just a reminder that the CTO Breakfast for March will be held this Thursday at 8am in the food court of the Canyon Park Technology Center (Building L of the former Word Perfect campus). Come a little early, grab some food at Gandolfo's, and enjoy the conversation. Please bring ideas, interesting Web discoveries, and other technology related issues to discuss. The past few months have had a large attendance and the discussion has been great. I'm looking forward to this Thursday. Here are the dates for the next four meetings. Mark you calendars now.

                          February CTO Breakfast Report

                          This morning's CTO breakfast was well attended (about 30 people) with good discussion. Here are some of the things we talked about. I started out mentioning that Hillarie Orman was on a panel at Demo and asking for a report from her. We got a good Cliff Notes version of the panel and conference. Bruce Grant was also there and mentions that conference was full of marketing hype as well as very smart people. We got into a short discussion of quantum computing and what that means to cryptography. Quantum computing and it's effects on cryptography shouldn't be confused

As usual, we'll meet in the Food Court at Canyon Park Technology Center (Building L of the former Word Perfect Campus). Come prepared to talk to the group about one or two interesting technologies you've seen in the last little while. We want to know what made you say "wow!" lately.

                          CTO Breakfast Date Change

                          I've had to change the date of the CTO breakfast for January. The schedule originally had us meeting on Thursday the 26th or January, but I've got to leave for Hawaii that morning (I know, but someone has to do it). So, instead, I've moved the breakfast to Tuesday the 31st of January. We'll be meeting at the Food Court in Building L of Canyon Park Technology Center (former WordPerfect campus) at 8am. The reason I'm going to Hawaii is to visit Brian Chee's network testing lab and I'll report on that. Please come with a few new things

                          CTO Breakfast Report

                          This morning's CTO breakfast was a lot of fun. We're getting a very good turn out and the discussion is excellent. The tenor of the discussion is different than at other technical meetings because the group has a fair number of CTOs, past CTOs, Director of Engineering types. That said, it's not exclusively that--there are plenty of young, fresh perspectives as well. It's a great mix that leads to good discussion. We started off with a question about recruiting good technical talent and that led to a 50 minute discussion about hiring, managing, and, when necessary, letting go of

                          October's CTO Breakfast

                          Next Friday at 8am we'll get together for October's CTO Breakfast. I'll just be getting back from two days at the Internet Identity Workshop, so I'm sure I'll be fired up about that. I've also had several people lately ask about building quality assurance organizations and their role in software development, so I thought that would be a good thing to discuss with the group. I'd love to know what people are doing now and think they ought to be doing. Of course, any technology-related topics you're interested in are welcome as well. As usual, we'll be holding the
