The IT Sceptic
This blog seeks to balance sunny over-optimism and hyperbole in IT with an icy blast of winter through the techniques of the skeptic as well as applying that other great Litmus test: common sense. This blog takes a critical look at IT’s absurdities, especially those relating to ITIL.
At O'Reilly, a big part of our business is paying attention to what's new and interesting in the world of technology. We have a pretty good record at having anticipated some of the big technology developments in recent history. For instance, we launched the first commercial Web site, GNN, in 1993; we organized the meeting at which the term "open source" was first adopted; we were early investors in Blogger, which helped launch the blogging revolution; and more recently, our Web 2.0 conference launched a world-wide meme. We call this predictive sense the "O'Reilly Radar." And while we're certainly not always right, we are, at least, good at making interesting guesses. Our methodology is simple: we draw from the wisdom of the alpha geeks in our midst, paying attention to what's interesting to them, amplifying these weak signals, and seeing where they fit into the innovation ecology. Add to that the original research conducted by our Research team, and you start to get a good picture of what the technology world is thinking about. What books are people just now starting to buy, and which are falling off in interest? Which tech-related Google AdWords are rising or falling in price? What can we learn from predictive markets tracking tech trends? What do help-wanted ads tell us about technology adoption?
ICT-professionals presteren beter wanneer ze met elkaar in contact staan. Zo kunnen ze tips uitwisselen, ervaringen delen, en ontdekken dat ze niet alleen staan. Het platform daarvoor is de NGN (Netwerk Gebruikersgroep Nederland), het platform voor ICT-professionals. De NGN brengt sinds 1989 IT- en netwerkprofessionals met elkaar in contact, en vormt een onafhankelijk en onpartijdig platform waar 3.000 leden kennis opdoen en ervaringen met elkaar uitwisselen.
