Re: Why Dave Wynn uses Fargo - http://threads2.scripting.com/2013...
"The fact that it stores the data in MY Dropbox, coupled with the customization is pretty much exactly why I'm in the process of migrating away from Workflowy over to Fargo. The only thing I haven't checked yet is mobile support" - Angelo Rodrigues
Re: The Consumerization Of The Enterprise Is Over - by Owen Thomas - http://readwrite.com/2013...
"I think that the next stage of COIT isn't the enterprization of the consumer but rather federated identity. The idea that you are who you are regardless of where you exist. Currently you have multiple personal ID's and a corporate ID. With consumerization firmly taking hold - there will be a push to have users identified easily within an organization without assigning org-specific credentials that they have to remember. You can continue to be exactly who you always were except now you have access to company specific resources as well. There's some excellent people working on not just federated identity, but the problems associated with it like proving identity. We're already starting to see this with companies like Yubico working on the early stages of things. But more importantly there are companies that have gotten federated identity almost perfect before realizing what they had. I'd love to chat some more about this and find out what you think. Feel free to reach out over Twitter..." - Angelo Rodrigues
Re: Cloud Wars – The Fall of Cloud Storage - http://cloudtimes.org/2013...
"Dropbox and Google operate on the same fundamental concept, albeit for different reasons. Google wants to control your data because that's how to build an identity that they can market to. Dropbox wants your stuff because you pay for storage. However, I think both services understand that storage isn't a long-term financial option so they're building services on top of it. I think in order to compete for your content the only way to win is to layer services on top of it. Whether they build their own docs service, or partner with someone (ZoHo perhaps?) or just purchase a new player it needs to happen eventually." - Angelo Rodrigues
Next re-write to my blog: Routex + RedBeanPHP for custom blog software + flickr api for location based images since I'll be moving around

"I think education, while conceived to develop a person, has morphed into a production line - they churn out workers at a exceptional rate. Part of that has to do with the misguided emphasis placed on a "degree" (not that there is NO reason for one, but the reason for most people getting one is wrong), and part of the reason lies with schools being businesses." - Angelo Rodrigues
"Maybe you've had a different experience personally, but the majority of my professors never wanted to be there teaching. They all had their own thing that they were doing and lecturing a bunch of people was something they had to do to make money. There's a big difference between teaching someone and talking at someone." - Angelo Rodrigues
"I think the reason that colleges and universities are taking this approach is simple: They're businesses at heart and they need to be where the money is. Tech entrepreneurs are receiving a lot of media attention, they're at the forefront of everyone's minds. As a result, it is much easier to sell you on "becoming the next Jobs" as opposed to "just come here to be more educated". So that's what they do. I'm not against universities/colleges making money, I understand that they need to - but I feel like they've become TOO focused on the business aspect and have let actual education fall by the way-side.  Just think of most professors in the field - they're not there to teach you. That's what they HAVE to do to do what they really want to do - research. And that research is what makes universities more money in the long run." - Angelo Rodrigues

"This is actually a very interesting concept that I have been researching myself (http://xangelo.ca). It's a work in progress and is being slowly expanded upon. I also suggest you take a look at some articles by Sir Ken Robinson, who has some great thoughts on the matter of education." - Angelo Rodrigues

Re: Using Application Events to Hook in Plugins - http://localhost:4000/2012...
"An event system is such a vital part of an application I'm surprised it never crosses the minds of so many developers. The best part about this, is that event managers are programming concepts so it's easy to move the idea between languages." - Angelo Rodrigues
