I came across a business survey to fill in this morning. I started.

Sometimes, I get so enmeshed in the technical that it's good to take a step back and look at our web site (and web sites in general) and say "what do we need to consider in the broader picture". I had this opportunity yesterday evening, as I ran a short session to look at some PHP issues.
A couple ...

"How do these technologies relate to Web 2?" asked one of my customers last week as we studied Apache httpd and Apache Tomcat. And of course that's followed up by the need to answer the question "What is Web 2".
Initial web sites - "Web 1" if you like - were discreet information sources provided by ...

What would I expect a browser to understand?

Have you seen the sudoku puzzles that are being published in the Daily Telegraph and (I think) the Los Angeles times? There's a whole group of addicts out there and helper and forum web sites too. Lisa pointed the puzzle out to me recently (no, she's not an addict!) with the thought of providing a ...

Web servers can compress .html and similar files before they send them out - a great way to keep traffic volume down where bandwidth is more of a consideration than processor power. But what proportion of browsers can accept compressed data? That's a darned good question which I was asked on today's ...
