WEBSITE Evolution and CMS Software

Webpages are evolving into modifiable BLOGS, and with the Trend, the Content Management Software (CMS) is poised to deliver us from the evil of HTML coding. Sure, you can hack away with HypeText Markup Language, but why bother? The Content is the important part. The means of getting it on the page is: Whatever works Best For You.

I usually juust use a simple Linux Text Editor (qedit) and just paste it into my Blogger page. Like THIS:

Blogs are short, clean, and work well with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), which give websites a very professional look.

The next step is, of course, audio and video streaming content.

Remember the hoopla about cable being the great democratization of MEDIA, it appears that the WEB is the form that will deliver on the Promise.

You ain't seen nothing yet...

Stay tuned.

A Great Couple of Weeks For OPEN SOURCE!

Last week Microsoft entered into a unique agreement with Novell. It paid Novell XXX Million dollars for the Windows to work (communicate), with SUSE Linux.

This Week Sun Microsystems let their JAVA out of the proprietary bag and released it under GPL licensing.

The General Press was busy paying attention to the Release of Game Consoles from Sony and Nintendo, but the real long-term impact event was these two giant steps toward Open Source.

This is HUGE!
