Blog on the go

I love my Nokia n800.  I bought it in Las Vegas last June and I use it almost everyday.  In fact, this post was typed on it using the fullscreen keyboard.

Anywhere you have a wifi network, you can use it.  You can even install 3rd party applications, something that cannot be done on an iPhone.

I installed Skype and Gizmo so I can do phone calls.  The n800 with earphones and an embedded microphone.


Google Trends

Wow.. amazing. Somedays, I just love Google. I just discovered Google Trends this morning. Check the Ruby on Rails trend. Isn’t that amazing? Now, you see on this graph that the trend is stable for now. I personally thought it would be going up, but hey, that’s just because I LOVE RoR.

Now what happens if we compare with other web development frameworks? Let’s combine the results with PHP, ASP.Net, Python, Java.

Interesting. Of course, Java is the highest one, followed by PHP. But if you look closely, you’ll notice that they are all going down. Although the new kid on the block (Ruby on Rails) is not as popular as the others, it’s popularity is not declining.

Yesterday, I was looking at Joomla and Drupal. Both open source CMS are getting a lot of attention. But I hear more often about Joomla than Drupal. Let’s see if this reflects in Google Trends! Of course, it does.

Have fun with Google Trends. It might not be scientific bullet-proof statistics, but since we are almost all using Google for our searches, I think we can rely on those facts.


Yup.  It’s time to join the group and have my own blog.  But why?  It takes time to write in a blog.  It’s also like speaking to nobody.  But you know, in the last few years, I found some incredible information in blogs and I think I need to repay the community bu sharing my knowledge.

I will mainly focus on IT stuff, this is my job.  So if you are looking for entertainment news or fun stuff, well, this isn’t the place.

Feel free to drop a comment if you feel the information you got is valuable.

See you soon!
