Anyone know Chinese?

Apparently this is one of my articles in Chinese. Not knowing the language, I have to believe it, although I do wonder if this is a case of The Hungarian Phrasebook again.

It's been a while since I've really been able to blog and that's all down to lack of time. Towards the end of last year, as part of the reorganisation of JBoss under Red Hat I was made Technical Development Manager of our SOA platform. What that basically means is that I'm in charge of the technical direction, development and productisation of everything SOA within the company. I went from managing 2 groups to 7 over night, with all that entails. Pretty interesting, I have to say, but definitely a time sink!

Arjuna and the history of middleware

Wolfgang has written a great paper on the impact of research on middleware. Arjuna gets several references, although there are a few inaccuracies (e.g., Arjuna Technologies wasn't sold to JBoss). Well worth a read.

John Backus dies

Some sad news. It's been a long time since I programmed in Fortran but I was always impressed with it.

Red Hat and Exadel

This is interesting news in a number of ways. I think it's great news for our products and projects.
