Replica Batmobile The most famous car on the planet. Apart from Herbie. ‘Atomic batteries to power…turbines to speed…Roger, ready to move out.’ Yes bat-fans, as any caped crusader knows, if you really want to strike fear into Gotham City’s master criminals you need a Batmobile. Needless to say Replica Batmobiles don’t come cheap. Batmobile Features: Lovingly built by skilled artisans across the pond (no, not Alfred the butler), each Replica Batmobile packs the power of a brand new GM350 crate engine beneath its fibreglass body, so racing from the Batcave to Commissioner Gordon’s office in just a few bat-seconds is easier than sliding down the Batpole. Good set of wheels But what about those all-important bat-gadgets? Unlike other TV/movie replicas the Batmobile is more than a prop, it’s a fully operational, road-worthy car with all the bells and whistles, including gauges, push-button ignition and working lights.

Easy Ajax with jQuery This article was written in 2011 and remains one of our most popular posts. If you’re keen to learn more about jQuery, you may find this recent article on jQuery 1.9 of great interest. Ajax is changing web applications, giving them a responsiveness that’s unheard of beyond the desktop. But behind all the hype, there’s not much to Ajax — HTML, JavaScript, and XML are nothing new, and in this tutorial, I’ll show you how to simplify the process of adding Ajax to your application even further with the help of jQuery. What’s Ajax? You’ve probably heard about Ajax before, or at least used an Ajax-based application — Gmail, for instance. Unfortunately, in-depth tutorials on practical ways to enter the world of Ajax are few and far between. What’s jQuery? jQuery is another mature JavaScript library that offers some features that the others do not. Assumed Knowledge To complete this tutorial, you’ll need some basic JavaScript knowledge. jQuery 101 $("").append("Hello World!"). Easy!

Jimmy Wales - O futuro da internet: as previsões de Jimmy Wales e Bill Gates Que a internet transformou nossas vidas – ao menos da maioria das pessoas – é inquestionável. Agora, nada é como há duas décadas, quando a utilização da rede se popularizou graças à invenção da World Wide Web e da criação do grande primeiro navegador comercial: o Netscape. Segundo Manuel Castells, a internet é, hoje, a infraestrutura de nossas vidas. Para ele, já vivemos uma "virtualidade real" e não mais uma "realidade virtual". Como será esta evolução? 2020: Os videogames desaparecerão. 2021: Notas de dinheiro, bitcoins e cartões de crédito estarão obsoletos. 2023: O mundo será vigiado por câmeras de segurança. 2025: Os 130 milhões de livros do planeta estarão digitalizados. 2030: Micropagamentos e transações móveis oferecerão, aos países em desenvolvimento, mais acesso a sistemas de crédito. 2030: O aprendizado online revolucionará drasticamente a educação nos países em desenvolvimento. 2032: A internet acabará com a indústria de Hollywood. 2050: Seu melhor amigo será um computador.

Layer 8: Going beyond enterprise architecture 101 | Network World Bringing the next generation of enterprise architects up to speed won't be an easy task. While most experts agree that the job is a critical one, given the corporate emphasis building business infrastructure in the most technically efficient way, training these future experts has proven difficult. "There is clearly a shortage of qualified enterprise architects and other with a similar perspective in the labor market...even in an economy with high unemployment," noted R. 15 genius algorithms that aren't boring There is help on the way though. The program has been in development for over a year and has involved some 70 companies - including Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Honeywell -- and professional associations such as The Open Group as part of the advisory group behind the Penn State program, says Brian Cameron, a Penn State professor and the director of the Enterprise Architecture Initiative. So will other universities begin offering such programs? Layer 8 Extra

RDF meets NoSQL March 9, 2010 On Thursday, I have 20 minutes to address 200 people (plus a video audience) at NoSQL Live … from Boston. My self-appointed mission is to start building bridges between the NoSQL community and the Linked Data/RDF/W3C community. These are two sets of people working on different problems, but it’s pretty clear to me they are heading in the same direction, in similar spirit, and could gain a lot from working together. I’m organizing my talk around the question of standardization for NoSQL, and I’ll talk about W3C process and such, but the interesting part is where NoSQL touches RDF. While they both want to move beyond SQL, their reasons are different. So… What does that all boil down to? Bottom line: RDF could learn a lot from NoSQL about scaling and ease-of-programming; NoSQL could learn a lot from RDF about decentralization and inference. Some closing questions, ideas…. Can someone make a SPARQL endpoint with Cassandra’s performance and scaling properties? Like this:

ICT 2015 · Innovate, Connect, Transform, 20-22 October 2015 · Lisbon, Portugal. amazon Anti-database movement gains steam The meet-up in San Francisco last month had a whiff of revolution about it, like a latter-day techie version of the American Patriots planning the Boston Tea Party. The inaugural get-together of the burgeoning NoSQL community crammed 150 attendees into a meeting room at CBS Interactive. Like the Patriots, who rebelled against Britain's heavy taxes, NoSQLers came to share how they had overthrown the tyranny of slow, expensive relational databases in favor of more efficient and cheaper ways of managing data. "Relational databases give you too much. They force you to twist your object data to fit a RDBMS [relational database management system]," said Jon Travis, principal engineer at Java toolmaker SpringSource, one of the 10 presenters at the NoSQL confab (PDF). NoSQL-based alternatives "just give you what you need," Travis said. Open source rises up What is NoSQL (technically speaking)? The names of these projects are as diverse as they are whimsical: Hadoop, Voldemort, Dynomite, and others.
