208 North demoed Atlas at the FOWA conference in Miami. It’s a really spiffy web-based IDE for Cappuccino geared towards building desktop style apps for the web. Go sign up for information on the release so you can be one of the first to play with Atlas.
Keep an eye on 280 North.. they’re going places for sure.
Yet another one of the great talks from TED 2009 – Barry Schwartz makes a case for “practical wisdom” in our society that’s become so reliant on bureaucracy to take care of our problems. He argues that rules and incentives usually fail to work and that we need to strive for personal responsibility and a real morality and character ethic to move us forward and out of crisis.
