Lots of chatter and coverage of the US House bill Stop Online Privacy Act (SOPA) and its sister Senate bill Protect Intellectual Privacy Act (PIPA) as these bills move through the sausagemaking that is our legislative process.
People feel strongly about these bills and are jumping on any bully pulpit to instill fear in the hearts of the non-supporters (or supporters, depending on the pulpit). As with most impassioned controversy, most of the coverage is limited to the polar extremes. Each side focusing on the most liberal interpretations of the most fringe aspects and exploding that into an argument against ...

Mobile computing is the new frontier of the online world, and Web developers are creating mobile-enabled Web applications that explore this frontier in new and exciting ways. 2010 showed that 3 percent of all Internet browsing activity occurred on mobile browsers, up from 1 percent at the end of 2009.

The study was conducted by researchers at Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario Research Institute and the University of Ottawa in Ottawa, Ontario.
The test was conducted using files provided by volunteer stakeholders in 15 clinical trials. And, although the samples were not representative of all clinical trials in Canada, they were "likely examples of trials where the stakeholders were sufficiently comfortable with their security practices."
"In all cases the ...

I am a great fan of the Associated Press Stylebook. I have had a copy on my desk for the past 20 years.
I try to enforce their guidelines throughout all that I write and review. I have been known to scrawl nasty comments next to improper usage when reviewing documents. I have summarily dismissed candidates from consideration when I observe errors on their resumes and cover letters. In short, I am a stickler for proper and consistent use of the English language.
I spent a lot of time correcting "website." "Web site," I would scrawl with my preferred quill ...
