Cloud Expo Early Bird Savings
A robust ecosystem of solutions providers is emerging around cloud computing.
Here, SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Journal expands its list of most active
players in the fast-emerging Cloud Ecosystem, from the 'mere' 100 we
identified back in January of this year, to half as many again - testimony,
if any further were needed, to the fierce and continuing growth of the
"Elastic IT" paradigm throughout the world of enterprise computing.

services and solutions in this round-up are in every case taken from the Web
sites cited. As ever we encourage software engineers, developers, IT

I wonder how many people, as I did, found themselves thrown into confusion by
the death last week of Jean Ichbiah (pictured), inventor of Ada.
Learning that the inventor of a computer programming language is already old
enough to have lived 66 years (Ichbiah was 66 when he succumbed to brain

I am always being told off by i-technologists for quoting Picasso as having
said that computers are useless. But I still love his reasoning? "Because
they can only give you answers."
Picasso, like AJAXWorld Magazine, liked questions. So we thought we would
share with you what some of the world's leading rich Internet application

From that readers can themselves infer where AJAX is headed.
What are the top questions to ask next about AJAX?
