Contract Programmer?

....Do you just pick up the phone? Do you answer an employment ad? Could you get a referral? Who do you talk to? And, how do you negotiate rates? By the hour, by the day, per project? What will you guarantee? How about GST, income tax, overtime? Do you register a company name, or incorporate? What if they don't like your work? What if you quote them a fixed price and you discover a terrible problem you can't fix. What are your liabilities if you mess up their system? What if you don't finish on time? ...

Anonynous Competitors Offer Remedies to Microsoft Monopoly

Unnamed competitors to Microsoft Corp. have circulated a list of proposed remedies to reel in the Redmond, Wash. based software giant.The remedies include a suggestion that Microsoft's Applications
Business Unit be split from the Operating Systems units because there is "an inherent conflict of interest when the owner of the dominant operating system also develops its own applications."
The document also suggests that Microsoft be prohibited from "crippling" competing products and forced to make the Windows APIs public so products from other vendors have equal access to
underlying Windows technology.In addition, the document states that Microsoft should be prohibited from predatory pricing. That charge has also been leveled most recently and publicly by Netscape...

Computer Times Singapore  Grace Chng

Environment of trust

Three elements key to the development of Singapore as an electronic commerce hub have been proposed by a high-level government committee. The key proposal is a law -- the Electronic Transaction Bill expected to be tabled in June -- which will provide the legal framework governing electronic commerce (EC). The other two pieces are a masterplan for EC promotion and investment here and overseas, and the building up of infrastructural services that will allow EC applications and services to be used by anyone, anywhere in Singapore and abroad.

Colonizing Virtual Reality

A technology emerges through a process involving broader cultural, linguistic, institutional and technological contexts. One clear illustration of this process can be drawn with the appearance of "virtual reality" in 1989, and the subsequent popularization of the idea through the media. On June 7, 1989 the computer-aided design software company Autodesk and the eclectic computer company VPL announced a new technology called "virtual reality."... In marketing this new technology (which represented a major shift in thinking about the nature of computers), the developers and promoters drew on a range of tropes: VR is shared and objectively present like the physical world, composable like a work of art, and as unlimited and harmless as a dream ...

Islands in the Clickstream: Voyagers

The Internet is a vast sea of possibilities, a symbolic representation of our collective consciousness and our collective unconscious. When we explore the Net, we are exploring ourselves. The Net is a swirl ofinvisible currents. We learn to surf swells of meaning that surge back andforth like the sea. We learn to follow currents of information, feeling theswells interact in subtle and complex ways. We become voyagers in the sea of information in which we are immersed, plunging through high seas inoutrigger canoes. We make our own tangled starmaps that represent andremember for us how to find our way home.There is ultimately only ourselves to know. When we try to understand everything, we do not understand anything at all, observed Shunryu Suzuki. But when we understand ourselves, we understand everything.The Internet is not so much a set of skills as it is a culture. Guided bymentors, learning like wolves to hunt together, we learn how to hang in the medium. The images on our monitors are icons, windows disclosing possibilities far beyond our home planet. Inner and outer space alike are explored by tele-robotic sensory extensions, revealing the medium in whichwe have always been swimming. Consciousness is the sea, and the sea is all around us. The secrets that we think are lost are simply waiting to be found: Supra-rational modes of knowing. Connection and community of suchdepth and complexity that we grow giddy with delight. A network in which weare both nurtured and fulfilled, each node of the web a reflecting facetlike one of Indra's jewels, reflecting each of the others and the totalityof the whole...
