IT in the Age of the Cloud

,----[ Quote ]
| Cloud computing represents the rise of the 
| Internet of services.  As digital 
| technologies are increasingly penetrating 
| every nook and cranny of the economy and 
| society in general, we are seeing an 
| explosion in the volume and variety of 
| cloud-based services flowing through the 
| Internet.  Consequently, the cloud computing 
| model requires a highly disciplined approach 
| to the management, delivery and consumption 
| of services for individuals and companies.


Overbite Project brings Gopher protocol to Android

,----[ Quote ]
| The Overbite Project is an open-source 
| effort to produce browser plugins and client 
| applications that enable support for Gopher, 
| an early network protocol that preceded HTML 
| and the contemporary World Wide Web. The 
| lead developer behind the project is 
| retrocomputing enthusiast Cameron Kaiser, 
| one of the few remaining champions of 
| gopherspace. His latest undertaking is a 
| mobile Gopher client for Google's Android 
| operating system.


A tale of a tale of a shareable future, part 3: Apache Web Server conquers the world 

,----[ Quote ]
| There was a moment, sometime near the end of 
| the last century, when it rather suddenly 
| became clear that Apache's web server was 
| going to cement its position as the dominant 
| webserver -- what the Web ran on. This meant 
| that a loose nonprofit affiliation of 
| moonlighting, largely unpaid volunteers had 
| just massacred the giants of Silicon Valley 
| -- Sun, Netscape, Microsoft -- on their own 
| turf, on their central battleground, a space 
| on which those corporate giants (I knew from 
| reading their annual reports) had focussed 
| their full attention and hundreds of 
| millions of dollars.


June 2010 Web Server Survey

| Global web server usage: The Apache server 
| leads by some 55 percent share serving 
| 112,663,533 web sites.



Linux-Based Website Beats Windows-Based Sites

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux websites have better uptime and load faster than Windows-based 
| websites. Research by WatchMouse, a website monitoring company, also 
| shows that web server platform Apache outperforms the Microsoft IIS 
| platform. Therefore, having a Linux website and an Apache web server 
| platform offers the best choice for professional web pages.


December 2006 Security Space Survey Results  

,----[ Quote ]
| Security Space estimates that nearly 90 percent of all Web sites
| are "orphans" to which no other sites link. Its Web server survey
| therefore counts only those servers referenced on other sites.
