September 2009 blog catch up
Apologies to all my blog readers I've been lax of late and haven't posted a great deal recently, and I'm afraid that in an attempt to clear down all the draft blog entries I have prior to the transition and acquisition (of Sun by Oracle, of course) I'll be posting a number of blog entries in quick succession, some of which I expect may need expanding upon in the future.
Topics I have to complete include part three of my provisioning article series, a number of posts on Google and the Google architecture, a number of posts on UK Government messaging systems, specifically DIS, a number of posts on the continuing issues with the economy and innovation and science spending in the UK, as well as a few others.
On the economy side, I was hoping to follow up my articles "[URL="http://blogs.sun.com/eclectic/entry/dberr_new_industry_new_jobs"]DBERR's views on the future growth of the UK economy 'New Industry, New Jobs'[/URL]" and "[URL="http://blogs.sun.com/eclectic/entry/uk_economy_gdp_contribution_imbalance"]Industry contributions to the UK economy and investment in R&D by industry[/URL]" with pieces which might include looking at:[LIST=1][*]'innovation' investment in the UK versus the UK's place in the World Wide league tables[*]UK versus US stimulation packages[*]Services Sciences and Web Sciences[*]the state of UK Manufacturing and "Robot"isation in the UK[*]a review of the recent 'Digital Britain' report[*]possibly a comparison of R&D spending and focus in the UK versus other nations (European comparison might be the most pointed)[/LIST]
But for now I'll see how I get on!
