Living on the Edge Trade shows and conferences are fantastic opportunities for learning, as well as networking with others in the industry. Where else can you hang out with hundreds, even thousands, of other wireless enthusiasts? I've recently spoken with many readers (at conferences of course!) and all agreed that conferences are extremely valuable to their professional lives. In an increasingly competitive business world, it's survival of the fittest, and the more you know, the fitter you are. In surveys, we've discovered that many of our readers regularly attend i-technology conferences to stay on top of their game, but if you don't - worry not. Now's as good a time as any to start! And there just happens to be one coming up next year that you might want to mark on your calendar now. Taking place in Santa Clara, California, May 7-9, 2002 (this is wireless time -... (more)

Wireless: Anytime, Anywhere?

I'm writing this month's editorial from the show floor at the CTIA Wireless 2001 Global Conference in Las Vegas where everyone who's anyone in the unwired world has come together for three short days to talk, showcase, and learn about everything wireless. Also worth mentioning is the unbelievable amount of networking that's occurred at the show, off the beaten path. Several companies, as you'll be hearing in the next few months, forged new partnerships through discussions over dinner, while on line for the overpriced show food, and around the floor. Stay tuned for coverage of tho... (more)

Beyond Words and Wires…Recovery Begins

In the aftermath of the horrific events of September 11, 2001, the entire nation came together to mourn the loss of those who died and suffered, and to plan a way to recover as a society as best we could. No words that I could write here would be adequate to convey how awful the atrocities were to witness or even to watch unfold on TV. Nor can mere words ever do justice to the extraordinary scenes of overwhelming human bravery and the endurance of the human spirit. Along with amazing individuals like New York City area volunteers who, as you read this, will undoubtedly still be s... (more)

Wireless Dreams

Beep, beep, beep goes my alarm clock on an average weekday morning. I roll out of bed and pick it up, but I don't just absentmindedly search for the snooze button as I usually do - instead I pick it up and, flipping open the lid, point it at my TV. Through its infrared transmitter I turn it on, and watch a few minutes of the morning news. Realizing it's time to get moving if I'm not going to be late to work, I use it again to turn the TV off, and take it with me to the bathroom, where I turn on the speaker radio, leave it on the counter, and hop into the shower. It gives me my mo... (more)

Where Do We Go from Here?

In this month's issue, as we start the fifth year of ColdFusion Developer's Journal, we've paused to look back at the past. Charlie Arehart wrote the retrospective cover story for this month, and I think you'll enjoy his trip down memory lane, starting back in version 1.0 of ColdFusion (1995), advancing to our first issue (1999), and stopping to look at all the major highlights that happened in between and since. How well do you know your CF trivia? Do you remember the fist logo? Do you remember when ColdFusion was the Cold Fusion Application Server (our editorial staff loved wh... (more)
