Looks like I have been living

Looks like I have been living under a rock. i spent the past weekend with my sister and her family. My brother-in-law and I got into a talk about, of all things, libraries. Somehow the conversation turned to the use of radio frequency id in his local library. While, I was familiar with the term at a baseline level, I had no idea how wide this technology spread.

He mentioned how the local library used them on everything they checked out. He also mentioned, how publishers are using RFID as a connection between print and online platforms.

This propelled me to think about my own ereading experience, and that I needed to educate myself on the nuance and capabilities of RFID.
Currently, I'm looking to learn about RFID readers(is www.rfidreader.com a good place to start?) and really understand the process.

Man, my inner nerd came out in this post! I'm just really excited when I have a chance to learn about something new, especially an emerging technology.

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
