SBA trumps EDA?

We are taking a look at some architectures for a next generation of a critical system at work.

I am a fan of EDA - Event Driven Architecture. I posted about it a bit here.

Its nice and all, but it is not without its problems. It certainly has a role to play in any architecture. But the last time I built one, I ran into some problems as detailed in my series linked to above.

Does SBA (Space Based Architecture) simplify things even more? For one thing, it minimizes "legacy" XML which is certainly a good thing. And the location transparency is mind boggling. Makes things like Sonic's shared subscriptions look quaint.

Just when you were happy that web services are finally dead, there is another shift. And if you are still talking about web services, well . . . sorry.

FUD Based Business Models

Something tells me that getting this clause adopted to GPL won't be as hard as GPL v3. I dislike FUD based business models. Around and round we go ...

Mother's Uncle George Stalk

My mother's Uncle George passed away a few weeks ago. He was an American hero (a retired Colonel). I only met him a couple times, but remember him fondly.

Check out the beautiful day at Arlington National Cemetary November 15.

Eye Twitch

I first remember getting the eye twitch in college during final exams.

Its back!

I get this every time I work too hard. Its pretty annoying. It's as if I have a short circuit or something!

I suppose it is one way for my body to tell me to get more sleep :)

As if I wasn't busy enough I am now insanely busy.

What is it they say . . . "If it doesn't kill you it makes you stronger"??

I sure hope so . . .

Nothing that OCD usage of a wiki can't solve I hope.
