Smartfolders in Netnewswire

I am a long time user of NetNewsWire, the best newsreader you can find. Its sometimes hard to manage the huge and ever growing mass of blogs, news etc, so I tried a new strategy: I started using smart folders for the mass and try to keep the number of blogs I read regularly low. So I can concentrate on the things I am really interested in.

Nice presentation by Hohpe

Infoq posted a nice presentation by Gregor Hohpe, where he talks about SOA. For him domain specific languages could be an answer to over complicated general languages like BPEL.

Also if you havent done so read his article about starbucks and the two phase commit: a very nice analogy about asynchronous communication in a real world example.
