- CTV.ca | Debit Card Fraud
hmmm we need a secure identity system for debit and atm's, obviously what we have now is not secure - "In fact, McGrath also told W-FIVE that the Canadian Bankers Association does not consider debit card fraud to be a major crime despite the fact that about 27,000 Canadians have been victims of this crime to the tune of $44 million in 2003."

- reoriginalize: Looking For A Cool Java App
sorry java apologists, java s*cks! Name one cool app please and i will stop saying Java s*cks! - "After frequently falling into the trap of thinking (and saying) nothing neat comes out of Java, I decided to dig around looking for Java projects that were cool. Most of the stuff I see coming from Java has very boring implications, some are wonderfully powerful, certainly, yet I have not seen anything that makes me say, "ooo.""

- Read/Write Web: Why Topic/Tag/Remix Feeds Are The Future of RSS
Sounds about right! - "In 2005 in the blogosphere, RSS is a community-enabler. You find someone you like and you subscribe to them, and conversations ensue. What I'm suggesting is that in the future RSS will still be a community enabler, but by far its biggest use will be as a means to subscribe to personalised news and other information important to the lives of non-blogging people. Examples of the information I'm talking about: stocks, bank statements, weather, information needed for one's job, sports news, niche information (the long tail), lots of other things we can't predict yet ;-)"

- Allen's Blog: Ten Commandments for Entrepreneurs
hmmm - "Although I'm going to write about 10 Commandments, there are really 13, the first three of which are, sort of, "Uber Commandments": (1) have a great technology idea, (2) have a great team and (3) pick a huge market in the midst of a major transition. That's the hard part -- and it's where advice from a VC can't really help you. But the next 10 Commandments are things you can control, more or less, and you should take advantage of this whenever possible."
