Linux Journal Editor Doc Searls to Keynote at iCitizen
iCitizen is a symposium in Columbus, Ohio serving as a platform for clients and partners of Resource Interactive to gather and take a deep dive into the opportunities and challenges offered by that new breed of consumer—who we call the icitizen. The social web gives a voice to those passionate consumers and offers effective tools for them to create, share and influence each other and the brands they incorporate into their lives.
Doc's May 21st keynote is titled, "Next on the Open Horizon". iCitizen publicizes it as: Web visionary Searls isn't much interested in making the current ad-centric "attention economy" more engaging. He wants to replace it altogether with an "intention economy" that matches consumers' intent to purchase a specific product with any and all relevant brands. Is this nirvana for marketers or does this economy render them obsolete? And will Searls's Vendor Relationship Management get us there?

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
