I found this older article from TheFeature.com about Wireless Health Care and Diabetes called One Guy, an Insulin Pump, and 8 PDAs.  I this after a trip my wife and I went on across the U.S. where I had to manage my diabetes through multiple time zones.  Also, I had just begun using an Insulin Pump at the time.  An interesting read, IMHO.  It also talks about wireless healthcare and my PalmPilot application, GlucoPilot.

Thanks To Everyone Who Attended My Talk Web Services Behind The Music At The SAOs Software Association Of Oregon Develo

Thanks to everyone who attended my talk "Web Services: Behind the Music" at the SAO's (Software Association of Oregon) Developer SIG last night.

Web Services: Behind the Music: They came out of no where. A pile of Web Standards with apparently superior intelligence rocketed on to the scene back in the late nineties with their break-through hit, SOAP 1.0. They made pop-culture history with their harmonic rendition of the WSDL 1.1 in the spring of 2001.  Now, after a 5-year hiatus, they’re exploding back into the public eye with their hit series, Web Services Basic Profile 1.0. Edgy, clever, and irreverent, this spec pokes fun at the conventions of the software industry and proved that the boys were indeed "coming on stronger than ever before." But their popularity waned, and soon they found that fame carries a heavy price.

I'd said I'd post all the links to the utilites and such that I used.  Also, please do visit the websites of Peter Drayton, where I absconded with a slide about REST as well as some exciting ideas about architecture, and that of Clemens Vasters, whose TechEd 2002 deck provided me a nice WSDL slide, and who has brought us a WS-Scurity implementation and other snazzy things in his Web Service Extensions for ASP.NET.  (Email me if you want the deck, it's 1.8megs)

The Tools I used in the Presentation

And be sure to get Yasser Shahoud's book Real World XML Web Services 

A lot of nice comments were made after the talk that my focus on WSDL, its flaws not withstanding, and the underlying principle that you may want to (gasp) design your Web Services interface in isolation from it's implementation was a fairly useful thing.  Most Web Services 101 presentation start with some .NET Wizard.  I didn't use a wizard during the entire presentation, and actually never used Visual Studio for anything but a project file manager and to run the compilers. This isn't typically something beginners start with, but I think more beginners should.  It's nice to see what's REALLY happening Behind the Music.

And for those of you at the presentation who were introduced to the WS and .NET Blogging group, start by asking yourself, "Is WSDL Too Hard?" and follow the thread around to see where it takes you.

Hey, um...if you haven't heard, you know, Michael Jackson may be a smidge unstable.  You know, I just haven't enjoyed his music as much since he became a white lady.

Its Not Easy To Read Its Certainly Not Written To Entertain But Still One Of The Most Important Pieces O

November 19, '02 Comments [0] Posted in Web Services | XML

It's not easy to read, it's certainly not written to entertain, but still one of the most important pieces of information on COM+ out there: U.S. Patent 6,422,620. PDF browser at espacenet , image and full-text version (you want to look at the text version first) at USPTO.

The patent explains how COM+ works internally -- how stuff gets activated, how policies provide extensibility points, how contexts are built and how context propagation works. The filing of this patent was a long while ago (Aug 17,1998), but the document was only published by the USPTO three months ago and although in XML times it may seem like anything 1998 must be outdated, this stuff describes quite well what's happening inside any copy of Win2K and up. Reminder: It's not a "how to" guide for hooking your own stuff into COM+, but allows you to understand what they've done -- reading this it is also a pretty complicated way to explain to oneself why WS-Coordination  is such a relevant WS spec.
[Clemens Vasters: Enterprise Development & Alien Abductions]

Danke zu dieser Information, Herr Vasters.  Dieses hilft mir außer der Welt mit COM+!
- Herr Hanselman(n)
