The LJ for November 2000 had a “source unknown” quote in the column titled “Let Freedom Ping” by Doc Searls. A quote that bears remarkable resemblance to the one mentioned is thought to be a Kenyan prayer, listed in Simpson's Contemporary Quotations. Just my two cents.
I love your magazine, except when you use strange acronyms without telling us what's going on. What is “URI” as used in Brian Aker's article (LJ page 172 November 2000). I've looked everywhere, including three years of back issues of LJ, and can't find this acronym used anywhere. Spare us the frustration and explain your acronyms every time, please.
(Don't tell me it's really “URL”)!
A URI is a “Uniform Resource Identifier”, and URLs are a subset of URIs. For more information on the difference between URIs and URLs, see http://www.w3.org/Addressing/. By the way, that was a URI, URl and URN all at the same time. We'll expand that acronym next time we use it.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
