http://twitter.com/fuatkircaali I live 11 minutes away from Teterboro Airport in New Jersey. Friday evening I took a Cessna Caravan for a short 45-minute flight to Martha's Vineyard. This was my first trip to the island. I didn't do any research and had false expectations based on my long-time love affair with the island of Cat Cay in the Bahamas. I found out that Martha's Vineyard was huge. Upon landing on the island, my pilot called a cab for me to take me to my hotel. According to the cab driver the island's population was around 30,000 off-season and well over 100,000 during its peak summer season. These numbers change drastically from driver to driver or whomever you ask, of course. As compared to a maximum three to six neighbors any time I go home to Cat Cay, this was an instant shock to me. I had a relaxing two-day weekend in Martha's Vineyard. As long as I ... (more)

Mark Hurd and Steve Mills

This is more like a long Tweet than a short blog entry. Personal issues aside Mark Hurd was a brilliant CEO for HP and he will be remembered as one of the greatest CEOs HP ever had. Like the rest of the world, we were curious and watched him from the beginning. I knew he was off to a brilliant start when - within days of getting the job - he put together an internal group of PhD economists specialized in game theory who developed a system that saved HP billions of dollars in purchases. Wikipedia defines game theory as "attempts to mathematically capture behavior in strategic situ... (more)

Katerina Moutsatsos, Kayikci and SOA World

After almost three months of traveling, I returned home today. When I flew around the island before I touched down, it was one of the most beautiful November days in the Caribbean. I had left home Labor Day weekend and traveled through Greece and Italy for most of October. It was one of the best seasons in Athens and Capri. Last Tuesday I was on a Turkish Airlines flight from Istanbul to New York. They must have bought new planes, still Airbus but with a personal entertainment system on every seat with huge plasma touch screens - beats JetBlue big time. This flight is almost 12 ... (more)

Web 2.0 Is Dead and Web 3.0 Is Five Years Away

http://twitter.com/fuatkircaali Do you remember our Y2K problem eight years ago? On January 1, 2000, all of a sudden, there was no Y2K problem. For many years every software company collectively made billions of dollars on Y2K projects. Y2K became an industry inside the software industry. I recall meeting a computer consultant who claimed to be fixing the Y2K problem on QuickBooks on a local PC used by a local mom and pop shop, a "hire a nurse" small business. Unfortunately Web 2.0 was not so lucky. Forget about the IBMs, Microsofts, Oracles of the industry for a moment that for... (more)
